Yukon, NWT closed

After the North West Territories, the Yukon is now also closing for all non-essential travel regardless of origin. Furthermore, non-essential travel within the Yukon to smaller communities is no longer allowed.

I'm not sure what the rules for Atlin, BC, are. (That community's only road access is from the Yukon.) My guess is that it will be treated as a small community, so no non-essential access/egress.

Whoever returns to the Yukon, even when from within Canada, has to go into self-isolation for 14 days. There will be enforcement measures, details are not yet publicly known.

As of early last week, Nunavut was also implementing the same "ban" on non-essential/non-resident travel. They're also requiring everyone returning from abroad to quarantine for 14 days at their southern gateway prior to boarding a flight to Nunavut (Edmonton, Winnipeg, Ottawa, etc). Supposedly the GN is paying for the lodging and meal costs during the 14 day quarantine.
