I just don’t want it to make it harder for Yukoners to get their vaccines. Community Services Minister John Streiker

The couple reportedly broke the mandatory 14-day quarantine after arriving in the territory so that they could get to Beaver Creek.

Next, they lied and said that they were visiting workers so they could get COVID-19 vaccine doses. 

Apparently, Beaver Creek is a priority community for the COVID-19 vaccination rollout because it is so remote.

The man and the woman have been charged under Yukon’s Civil Emergency Measures Act for saying that they would self-isolate when they arrived but not actually doing it.

The maximum fine for offences like this is $500 and up to six months in prison.
