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:

  • Ajax Steel in Whitehorse, from Oct. 14-16, and from Oct. 18-21, between 7:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.
