Effective Thursday, November 19th, the size of private indoor gatherings is reduced to five people (in homes and buildings on private property such as garages and sheds).
Restrictions limiting the size of indoor and outdoor public and private gatherings remain in place.
Beginning November 19, private indoor gatherings may have a maximum of five people in the home or in buildings located on the private property (eg. garages, sheds). Two-metres physical distancing should be observed when people from outside the household are present. Indoor public gatherings and outdoor gatherings may have a maximum of 30 people where there is enough space to maintain two metres between individuals who are not in the same household.
The intent of the new measure is to limit social gatherings in homes. The gathering size restriction does not apply to:
- Settings where people are distributed into multiple rooms or buildings, workplaces and home-based businesses while they are operating as a business (including in-home daycares). Home-based businesses are considered a workplace for the time the service is being provided, and not a private indoor gathering. As such, owners/operators of these facilities should be following guidance available in the Re-Open Saskatchewan Plan applicable to their place of business.
- Home-based businesses should be following Indoor Mandatory Masking Requirements.
- Critical public service or an allowable business service.
- Events and activities to the extent that the guidelines applicable to those events or activities found in the Re-Open Saskatchewan Plan explicitly permits or requires an alternative gathering size for a specific event or activity. In such a case, the gathering size explicitly permitted or required shall not be exceeded and specified physical distancing shall be maintained.
