Camping is different during COVID-19
You need to be more self-contained
- Pack everything you need before hitting the road to limit stops in the communities.
- Only buy supplies in the community if stores are welcoming business.
- Bring extra water, soap, hand sanitizer and toilet paper.
- Only camp with members of your "combined household bubble,” maximum 1 bubble per site.
- Clean your picnic table before and after use.
- Follow all park and campground rules and the 6 steps to staying safe.
1. Physical distancing – keep 2 metres (6 feet) away from everyone who's not a member of your household.
2. Wash your hands frequently with soap and water, or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
3. Stay home if you're feeling sick.
4. Don't gather in groups of more than 10 people and remember to keep 2 metres (6 feet) apart.
5. Limit travel to rural communities.
6. Self-isolate if you've just returned to the territory, or if you've been in contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19.
All orders and recommendations issued by Yukon’s Chief Medical Officer of Health apply in territorial parks and campgrounds.
No one can self-isolate in a territorial park or campground.
Non-residents who are required by law to travel through Yukon within 24 hours cannot stay or stop in government-run campgrounds.
