Following Yukon government’s actions to begin easing COVID-19 restrictions across the territory, Yukon Energy is implementing a phased approach of our own to return employees to the office and to reinstate business-as-usual services to Yukoners. At all times, the health and safety of our employees and Yukoners remains our top priority, as does keeping the lights on and providing exceptional service to our customers.
Like Yukon government, we have four phases in our COVID-19 recovery plan and will be moving to Phase 2 on July 1, 2020. During Phase 2, here’s what you can expect to see from us:
More Yukon Energy employees and contractors in Yukon communities.
Electricity is considered a critical and essential service in Yukon, even during a pandemic. Our employees and contractors will be travelling across Yukon to:
Employees and contractors travelling to Yukon communities will follow guidelines in Yukon government’s Direction and guidelines for the delivery of critical, essential and other services during COVID-19 document, including:
Employees or contractors who develop flu-like symptoms during their stay in a community will also be directed to immediately leave the community and to speak to a health practitioner.
More employees in the office.
Limited visitors to our offices.
As we continue to move through the phases of our COVID-19 recovery plan, we remain committed to doing our part to curb the spread of COVID-19 and to support our customers and neighbours. Phases 3 and 4 of our COVID-19 recovery plan will see more employees working from the office, more public meetings with larger groups, and a greater number of visitors allowed to our offices. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic closely and will transition through our plan at the guidance of Yukon’s Chief Medical Officer of Health and Yukon government.
In the meantime, stay safe Yukon.
