What We Know:

What Our Next Steps Are:

  1. All KFN Citizens and community members living on settlement land feeling cold or flu-like symptoms are required to self-monitor and isolate for 14 days.
  2. KFN also insists that Citizens and community members living on settlement land follow Yukon’s Chief Medical Officer of Health (CMOH) strong recommendation to suspend any non-essential travel to and from Yukon rural communities.
  3. All KFN Citizens and community members are to practice the social distancing and maintain at least two (2) meters distance between individuals who do not live together in the same home.
  4. All non-essential travel to KFN traditional territory from other regions from Yukon and within Canada is to be minimized. When this is possible, the instructions above will be followed.
  5. All KFN Citizens, community members & businesses in KFN traditional territory are strongly encouraged to take steps to prevent the transmission of Covid-19 and follow safe six plus one.
  6. KFN Council will continue to monitor the situation closely, and if required shall implement enforcement measures to ensure the health & safety of all Citizens and the KFN Community.
