The Yukon government has rolled out its multi-stage plan to reopening the territory, and it starts with letting some restaurants and personal service businesses soon get back to work.
Premier Sandy Silver and the Yukon’s chief medical officer of health Dr. Brendan Hanley presented the plan at the May 15 COVID-19 update.
Silver went over the stages. He said the territory is just exiting the “response” stage to the pandemic and is now entering the “restart” phase.
“It doesn’t all start today, but today we can start,” Silver said.
