4. SHA Adopting Modified Approach to Case and Contact Tracing

The Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) is requesting assistance from COVID positive individuals to provide notification to their own close contacts of their positive status as part of its modified approach to contact tracing.

Positive COVID-19 cases are surging, as well as the number of close contacts being identified by cases. This surge combined with limited public health resources has resulted in an inability to provide timely notification to individuals who may have been exposed and are at risk.

The Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) public health is adopting a modified approach to case and contact investigations. As a result, COVID positive persons will be supported to notify their own close contacts.

SHA Public Health will:

  • Quickly notify individuals testing positive for COVID and provide isolation education.
  • Educate individuals testing positive for COVID on who is a close contact and what information to provide to their close contacts.
  • Continue to identify persons testing positive in healthcare settings, vulnerable populations, long term care and other congregate living settings to prioritize investigations in these setting so that outbreak prevention and control measures can be put into action quickly.

The Saskatchewan Health Authority and Ministry of Health are working together to review the protocols around school case management and contact tracing.

Supporting public health teams by personally notifying close contacts is a valuable action people can take to reduce the spread of COVID-19, in conjunction with vaccination.
