While producers continue to get their work done to keep our vital supply chain functioning, everyone, including those working outdoors, must follow protective measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
For detailed information on COVID-19 protocols in the workplace, view the “COVID-19 Workplace Information” fact sheet and other resources available at COVID-19 Information for Businesses and Workers. There is information on cleaning, disinfection and personal protective equipment and other preventative practices to follow.
Workplaces - including farms and ranches - are encouraged to have plans in place for increased worker absences due to illness or isolation.
As well, you can find the full list of critical public services and business services that are currently allowed to continue operating during the COVID-19 response: Critical Public Services to Address COVID-19 and Allowable Business Services.
With even mild symptoms, stay home. Everyone must do their part to slow the spread of COVID-19, no matter the size or location of their community. Use the Saskatchewan Covid-19 Self Assessment tool to determine if you should contact HealthLine 811.
