WHITEHORSE — Patrons at bars, lounges and nightclubs in Yukon will be allowed to sing karaoke and play certain instruments after the territory updated its COVID-19 guidelines on Wednesday.

Customers at pubs, lounges and nightclubs will be able to sing and play wind instruments but must follow social distancing protocols.

Dancing is still not permitted.

Other changes affect parents, who are no longer required to fill in a daily assessment tool for their children at daycares.

The territory has recorded 14 cases of COVID-19 and all 11 of those who contracted the illness within Yukon have recovered.

Yukon has not seen any active cases of COVID-19 since April 20.
