As the Government of Yukon has released a notification of a state of emergency, the NND Education Department will be taking precautions that have been discussed by NND Government to ensure the safety of the Mayo community.
For Dunena Ko’ Honete ko Daycare:
Like daycares in Whitehorse, the Daycare in Mayo will remain open as it is an essential service. Parents/guardians can choose to keep their children home at this time. Daycare staff are required to always wear masks and will continue to sanitize regularly. If a child is brought in with any of the common cold symptoms, parents/guardians will be asked to take that child home to prevent any outbreak at the daycare.
For the Youth Centre:
The Youth Centre will remain open to children ages 12 and up who are vaccinated. The Youth Assistants will work in the coming days to provide activities for younger children to do at home. These will be rolled out next week. COVID regulations will be followed in the Youth Centre, which includes, no more than 10 people are allowed in the space at one time, mandatory mask wearing, and regular sanitizing. If a youth has any of the common cold symptoms, they will be asked to go home.
For Post-Secondary and NND Training:
PAL and First Aid courses have been cancelled until further notice. The First Nations Garment Making Program is still running until further notice. YukonU is following COVID regulations. All student travel is suspended until further notice.
We appreciate community understanding during this time.
