We want to provide you with an update from the Yukon Land Use Planning Council and the Dawson Regional Planning Commission regarding operations as we responded to the COVID-19 pandemic. On March 16th, 2020 Yukon’s Chief Medical Officers gave a press conference asking Yukoners to undertake several precautionary measures to help prevent spreading the virus across the territory. Yukoners are being asked to work from home. Those returning from abroad are required to self-isolate for two weeks, and there is now a temporary ban on all gatherings of more than 50 people. Parents are asked to stay at home with their children.
As such, we will be closing our office until the end of March and the staff are working from home. We will remain operational during this time and all staff will be checking e-mails and voicemail (unless they are on holidays). We anticipate having to alter our meeting plans to accommodate for a teleconference or video call, instead of meetings in-person. Will continue to monitor the situation in Yukon and proceed as advised by Yukon’s Chief Medical Officer.
We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.
