20 New COVID-19 Cases Reported in Yukon Over 3 Days


The Yukon government is reporting 20 new cases of coronavirus over a 3-day period.

Between Friday at noon and Monday at noon, 14 new cases were reported in Whitehorse, and 6 others elsewhere. The government has not said in which communities the new cases happened.

The total number of active cases continues to fall because of recoveries. On Friday, it was at 77, and by Monday had fell by 1, to 76.

Over the weekend, a drive-up COVID-19 testing center in Whitehorse shut down.

The government opened to help deal with the rising number of persons seeking tests because of the June outbreak, but said that it was being shuttered “based on numbers of individuals currently seeking testing after hours.”

Testing is still available every day of the week at the COVID-19 Testing and Assessment Centre in Whitehorse.
