Yukon health officials issued six public exposure notices Thursday, including three for flights and one for a daycare.

Anyone who was on any of the three following flights is asked to self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms for 14 days and get tested if any develop.

Health officials also issued a notice for staff and children in the infant group of the Grow with Joy Child Care in Whitehorse for Oct. 18-20.

A Thursday news release said Yukon Communicable Disease Control has sent notification letters to those who were affected.

The other two notices are for the two locations:
