Posted by City of Yukon on 07/17/2020

The City of Yukon received test results Friday that confirm a Yukon Community Center employee tested positive for COVID-19. The individual who tested positive reported to work on July 8 and 9, and this person worked with attendees of one of Parks and Recreation’s Mini Camps. The employee did not become symptomatic until the following weekend. The employee is currently recovering at home.

Immediately upon confirmation of the positive result, the City of Yukon contacted any patrons or parents of patrons the infected individual came in contact with to notify them and advise them to monitor their health. The City is requiring that the infected employee refrain from coming to work for at least 14 days. 

The City is closely monitoring the situation and will take necessary actions to protect its residents and employees.

The City of Yukon has taken significant steps to protect clients and staff. These include.

  • Mandatory mask wearing of employees that engage with the public, as well as all employees of the Yukon Community Center, Dale Robertson Center, Jackie Cooper Gym and Mabel C. Fry Public Library

  • Touchless hand sanitization stations at every building

  • Directing staff who are symptomatic of or having COVID-19 to stay home and self-quarantine

The safety and health of our residents and employees is our top priority. The City of Yukon is following medical protocols from national and local health authorities and has implemented staff guidelines in relation to social distancing and hygiene.
