Yukon Just Loosened So Many COVID-19 Restrictions & It Shows What’s In Store For Canada

If you're wondering what life looks like without so many COVID-19 restrictions, just look north. The Yukon is lifting several of its COVID-19 restrictions on Tuesday, May 25, because of high vaccine uptake.

With over 75% of eligible Yukoners having received their first COVID-19 vaccine dose, the territory says it's reopening bars and restaurants with full indoor table service allowed.

Social bubbles in the Yukon are set to increase to 20 people on May 25, and social gathering limits will be bumped up to 20 people indoors (with masks) and 100 people outdoors, as long as physical distancing is maintained.

Organized indoor gatherings and gyms/recreation centres will have a capacity of 200 people, again with physical distancing required.

The Yukon's travel restrictions will no longer require travellers to self-isolate for 14 days when they arrive, as long as they sign a vaccine declaration and "provide consent for the verification of their vaccination status."
