Yukon sees its first two COVID-19 cases — a couple who recently visited the U.S.

Yukon’s chief medical health officer says the territory has its first two cases of COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.

Dr. Brendan Hanley says a couple from Whitehorse who attended a conference in the U.S. were tested upon their return.

He says they had both been self-isolating since they got home, and in doing so, protected their fellow Yukoners from catching the virus.

Hanley says the cases do not change the risk of becoming ill with the virus in the territory.
