A Message from Village of Mayo Council for Travelers visiting Mayo and the Silver Trail Region
June 19, 2020
The Village of Mayo would like to advise travelers planning to visit the community of Mayo that they are expected to abide by the most recent guidance issued by Yukon’s Chief Medical Officer regarding traveling through rural communities.
Travelers are advised to bring the supplies they will need for the duration of their trip to Mayo and the Silver Trail area.
Services are limited at this time: The Binet House Museum and McIntyre Park are closed for the 2020 season; the restaurant is closed; the Snack Bar– call ahead; local accommodations – call ahead; the grocery store only allows a limited number of patrons in the store at one time; some establishments have reduced hours of operation.
Practice the “safe six” recommendations for keeping yourself and others healthy (keeping two meters from others, frequent washing of your hands, stay home if you are feeling sick, do not gather in large groups, avoid unnecessary travel, self-isolate if you just traveled outside the Yukon or have come in contact with someone who has been diagnosed with covid-19). Please respect the specific rules local stores and offices have in place.
For more information, visit “Yukon.ca/covid-19”.
Mayo residents are reminded to heed the same rules when traveling to, traveling through, or visiting family and friends in other Yukon communities or outside Yukon.
Keep safe and keep healthy!
We look forward to welcoming everyone again in the future when life returns to normal.
