Outdoor/on the land education, field trips and overnight trips
The risk of COVID-19 transmission is lower in outdoor settings than it is indoors; as a result, outdoor education and on the land programming is encouraged.
When physical distancing is not possible (e.g. sitting on a bus), students should be assigned a partner or seat that does not change for the duration of the trip.
Schools should develop a plan if a student becomes symptomatic before or on an excursion or field trip.
Field trips within Yukon and Canada are permitted if public health guidelines are followed. Guidance is based on the current epidemiology of COVID-19 and will be reevaluated at the beginning of the school year.
Outdoor overnight trips are permitted if students sleep in their own tent or are partnered with a family member. o Hotel stays are permitted, with no more than two students per room.
International field trips are not currently permitted.
