On November 8, Yukon Government declared a State of emergency and announced new measures due to the surge of COVID-19 cases in the Yukon. Throughout this pandemic, the City of Dawson Parks and Recreation department has supported and cooperated with the mandates released by Yukon Government. We continue to trust in the expertise and knowledge of our health authorities in making the appropriate regulations on behalf of all residents of our community.

At this time, we do not have all the answers to the questions we are receiving, but we are doing our best to develop methods that will work for users of our facilities and staff alike. We appreciate everyone’s patience and cooperation as we implement measures at our various facilities and programs. As of this moment, we are announcing the following measures:

Programs (Effective November 13, 2021)

o Registration will be required for all programs.

o All participants aged 12 and over will be required to provide Proof of Vaccination at Recreation Office (in person, Monday to Friday, 9 to 5, closed weekends and statutory holidays) prior to the start of the program and will be expected to carry Proof of Vaccination and ID to each program occurrence.

o Masks mandate in effect where possible.

o Specific measures for specific buildings apply (ie. School rules trump City rules).

o High Intensity Programs to be suspended (specific list to be released once more details are released).

We offer a variety of programming for all ages throughout the year.
