The Yukon is reporting two new cases of COVID-19 — one inside and one Outside of the territory.

Dr. Brendan Hanley, the territory’s chief medical officer, announced the new cases in a press release on May 11.

Case number 83 is an adult in Whitehorse who travelled internationally. The individual is self-isolating. There are no public exposures related to this case.

Case number 84 is a Yukon resident currently outside of the territory. They acquired the infection and were tested outside, and will remain outside until non-infectious. While this person is not currently in the Yukon, they are still included in the Yukon’s case count because they are a resident.

Anyone experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 can book an appointment online or call 867-393-3083.
