All people, including children and babies, are counted in the private or public gathering size limits.
Starting December 17, all private dwelling indoor gatherings are limited to immediate households (people you currently live with) only. Single individuals (a person who resides on their own) are permitted to meet with one household of less than five (always the same household).
For clarity, a person who resides on their own may not visit or host multiple households and households may not visit or host multiple persons who reside on their own.
Co-parenting arrangements are permitted to continue. Caregivers, support personnel and tradespersons are permitted.
As of December 17th, people may meet and greet outdoors with up to 10 people only, provided physical distancing between households can be maintained.
Indoor public banquets, conferences, wedding and funeral receptions in public venues will be limited to 30 people. Food or beverages may not be present or served.
While fishing is an allowable activity, it is recommended that ice shacks (i.e., enclosed shelters for use in ice fishing) only be used by occupants who are members of the same immediate household (i.e., people you currently live with). However, if people from different immediate households are in the same shack, they must have room to be at least two metres apart and must wear masks.
Public gatherings of any size beyond your immediate household are strongly discouraged at this time.
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.
