This order aligns with adjustments to restrictions under the phased approach of the Re-Open Saskatchewan Plan.

The Government of Saskatchewan and Chief Medical Health Officer of Saskatchewan carefully monitor transmission patterns of COVID-19 to inform decisions about whether to lift restrictions further or put them back in place if required.

Long-term measures and restrictions related to the highest risk areas will remain in place for the foreseeable future.

4. Why is the Government of Saskatchewan issuing public health orders for COVID-19?

A new table explaining why we ask you to follow each public health measure is now available.
  • Our government's goal is to protect the overall well-being and livelihoods of people of Saskatchewan as much as possible while minimizing serious illness and deaths due to COVID-19. 
  • We are all at risk of getting sick with COVID-19 and spreading it to our family, friends, and neighbours.
    • People of all ages have been hospitalized, and some have died, due to COVID-19.
    • The long-term effects of COVID-19 on people who have gotten sick are still unknown.
    • It will take time to get enough people vaccinated against COVID-19 to slow transmission.
    • Even if you have received the vaccine and do not get sick, you might still pass COVID onto others.
  • We need to make sure our hospitals have enough room for all patients (those with COVID-19 and those without).
    • Some people With COVID-19 become seriously ill and need to be cared for in hospital. If we have too many COVID-19 patients needing hospital care, our hospitals will be overwhelmed.
    • This means that we will not have enough hospital beds, healthcare workers, or equipment to save lives from preventable deaths.
    • It also means that we cannot provide less urgent healthcare (e.g. elective surgeries) when people need it.
    • Even if you are not hospitalized when you get sick with COVID-19, there is a good chance of you giving the illness to someone else who will need to be hospitalized.
  • Public health orders target the riskiest activities and environments for spreading COVID-19.
    • Public health officials are continually tracking how COVID-19 is spreading in our communities, as well as new evidence about the virus and what measures are necessary to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in Saskatchewan.
    • These can change over time. Public health orders are updated to match our current situation.
    • Public health orders are only put in place when absolutely necessary.
