Starting July 1, Nunavut residents can travel to Yukon but will still have to go into isolation on the way back

Starting July 1, Nunavummiut can travel to Yukon, but they’ll still have to go into isolation for 14 days on the way back, says Nunavut’s chief public health officer.

The Yukon government announced yesterday that residents of the Northwest Territories and Nunavut will be able to enter Yukon without going into isolation first.

Joe Savikataaq said Yukon Premier Sandy Silver contacted him yesterday about the change.

But if Nunavummiut travel to Yukon, they will still need to spend 14 days in isolation on their way back to Nunavut.

Yukon’s announcement follows one by the Government of the Northwest Territories on Friday, June 12, that it would allow Nunavut residents to enter the N.W.T. without undergoing a 14-day isolation period.
