Rallies, marches and protests are an important part of our democracy. These are also activities that see large concentrations of people in the same place. If you are taking part in a protest, rally or march, be cautious and stay safe.
- Organizers are encouraged to have gatherings done in vehicles.
- If groups are wanting to congregate or march on foot, they are advised to keep a distance of two metres or more between each person at all times.
- Mask use and frequent hand hygiene is strongly encouraged.
- Items must not be shared or passed back and forth among participants.
- In situations where singing or chanting is happening, it is recommended that physical distancing be expanded beyond the recommended two metres, as this behaviour expels the virus at a greater velocity and distance. Please consider using signs or banners instead.
- Large gatherings greatly increase the risk of transmission of the highly contagious COVID-19 virus.
- The nature of activities like marches and rallies also means it is very difficult for officials to find and notify participants who may have been exposed to the virus.
- Organizers of any protests or rallies are encouraged to contact local public health offices for guidance.
- All groups or individuals considering participation in protests or marches should consult information on public health orders and gathering size limitations currently in effect at www.saskatchewan.ca/COVID19.
While peaceful public protests are important, please be aware of the elevated risk to yourself and your loved ones, and take all necessary precautions to remain safe.
