As we face the ever-evolving challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, the health and safety of our employees and Yukoners remains our top priority. Like everyone, Yukon Energy is concerned about the well-being of our people, family, customers, and those most vulnerable to the virus. We are also committed to doing our part to ‘flatten the curve’ and to keeping the lights on across Yukon.
Following the Yukon Chief Medical Officer of Health’s announcement on Sunday, March 22 about two confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Yukon, we are putting additional precautions in place to keep our employees, customers and Yukoners healthy, and to sustain operations during the pandemic. These precautions are in addition to the measures we implemented on March 16 which included: travel restrictions and self-isolation measures; enhanced workplace hygiene and social-distancing practices; employees working from home where possible; and postponing community meetings.
Restricting visitors to all Yukon Energy offices or facilities.
Limiting employee presence at sites.
Suspending all non-essential travel outside of Yukon and to remote Yukon communities.
Rest assured, Yukon Energy remains committed and well-equipped to provide safe and reliable power to our customers in Dawson City and across Yukon.
These are challenging times, we know – for individuals, families, businesses and communities as a whole. As Yukoners ourselves, we are committed to do all we can to curb the spread of COVID-19 and to support our customers and neighbours through these difficult times. Our thoughts are with those who have been seriously impacted by COVID-19. We are also particularly grateful to all health care workers on the front lines working to keep us safe and to treat those who are ill.
We will continue to follow the guidance of Yukon’s Chief Medical Officer of Health as the COVID-19 pandemic evolves and will act accordingly as new information becomes available.
To all Yukoners, please stay safe—we’re here for you and ready to lend our support through this challenging time.
