How Council is Supporting Community Members in Self-Isolation
Anyone who is traveling outside of Yukon must follow the COVID-19 Guidelines, which means you must self-isolate for 14 days upon returning to the territory. If you are self-isolating in Ross River, please notify the COVID-19 Action Plan Working Group by calling the Ross River COVID-19 Support Line at 747-0099 or email to email@example.com and we can assist with grocery shopping and other tasks.
For the safety of the community, please do not visit with others, do not go to work, do not invite others into your home, and do not visit the store while you are self-isolating. If you experience any symptoms, even minor symptoms, please stay in your home and contact the Ross River Health Centre at 969-4444.
