    With the border south closed and no known date on when it will reopen I was thinking of heading North from Vancouver BC up to Dawson City and onward to Tuk providing the weather and road conditions cooperate

    I can’t find any confirmed intel whether or not their are issues getting into the Yukon / NWT?


    Also thinking about riding up to either Whitehorse or a Dawson and storing the bike for a week while I come back home for work and then head back up to finish the trip. Is this possible?

    Travelling to Yukon if you're fully vaccinated
    From May 25, 2021, people who are fully vaccinated and 14 days past their final dose of a vaccine approved by Health Canada can travel to Yukon and not have to self-isolate.

    Fully vaccinated means:

    • you've received the recommended number of doses of a COVID-19 vaccine authorized for use by Health Canada; and
    • more than 14 days have passed since you received the last of the recommended number of doses.
    When entering Yukon you must:

    • sign a declaration confirming vaccination status;
    • consent to verification of vaccination; and
    • provide proof of your completed vaccination schedule when required.
    Vaccinated in Yukon or British Columbia
    If you were vaccinated in Yukon or British Columbia, you're required to sign a declaration and consent form.

    You are not required to provide any additional documentation as Health and Social Services staff can verify your vaccination status through the Panorama database.

    Vaccinated somewhere other than Yukon or British Columbia
    If you were vaccinated somewhere other than Yukon or British Columbia you must provide documentation from the jurisdiction where you were vaccinated. This is until a formal, consistent national record is developed.

    This documentation must clearly identify:

    • the jurisdiction where you were vaccinated;
    • vaccination dates; and
    • evidence that you received all the required doses of a Health Canada-approved vaccine.
    When to provide proof
    You can provide proof:

    • before you arrive; or
    • at the airport or land border.
    Before you arrive
    1. Fill in a declaration form which includes consent to allow us to verify your vaccination status.
    2. Scan or photograph your proof of vaccination.
    3. Submit proof of your vaccination
    This secure portal is only seen by Health and Social Services staff authorized under the Health Information and Privacy Management Act (HIPMA). They will verify your documentation.

    At the airport or land border
    1. Fill in a declaration form which includes consent to allow us to verify your vaccination status.
    2. Submit proof of your vaccination
    You'll have 24 hours to provide proof of your vaccination. We'll accept a photograph of your documentation.

    This secure portal is only seen by Health and Social Services staff authorized under the Health Information and Privacy Management Act (HIPMA). They will verify your documentation.

    Civil Emergency Measures Act (CEMA) information officers will submit a copy of your declaration to a database that Health and Social Services staff are authorized to view for the purposes of verification. On the declaration form, you must provide contact information in case we have any questions about your vaccination verification.

    If we do not receive proof
    If we do not receive your proof of vaccination within 24 hours, a verification team member will contact you to remind you.

    If you do not or cannot submit your documentation and we cannot verify your vaccination status, we'll direct you to begin self-isolation. Failure to comply may result in a report to CEMA enforcement officers.[/QUOTE]
