Yukon city officials have released details about new rules for bars, hair and nail salons and barber shops.

On Monday, Mayor Mike McEachern signed an extension of a state of emergency proclamation for the city to last until April 13.

The proclamation states that gyms, fitness facilities, spas and entertainment venues are prohibited from operating.

All bars and similar venues, hair salons, barber shops and nail salons may remain open as long as there is space between customers, leaving every other chair, table or station open to allow space between people.

The rule is to preserve the recommended public distancing guidelines.

All dine-in, carry-out and delivery services shall be allowed to continue operating during the state of emergency.

All meetings of the Yukon authorities, boards, commissions, committees and trusts will continue on their regular schedules.
