Advisories and Policies
Prior to 1 October, 2022, all passengers were required under Transport Canada regulations to wear a non-medical mask or face covering. This requirement has been lifted, and passengers are no longer required to wear a mask inflight if they do not wish to do so—although the government does strongly recommend wearing a well-fitted, high quality mask during your travels.
Air North, Yukon’s Airline would like to encourage those who feel more comfortable wearing a mask, or those who have medical reason to do so, to continue wearing masks on-board our flights and in airports.
For those who wish to wear a mask, here is some useful advice from the Public Health Agency of Canada:
Based on guidance from the Government of Canada, if you have received a COVID-positive test result or have COVID-like symptoms, you should not travel.
What are the symptoms of COVID-19?
- Shortness of breath
- Runny nose
- Sore throat
- Loss of sense of taste or smell
- Loss of appetite
- Nausea and vomiting
- Muscle aches
