Rallies and Protests During the COVID-19 Pandemic

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. Large gatherings greatly increase the risk of transmission of the highly contagious COVID-19 virus and make it very difficult for officials to find and notify participants who may have been exposed to the virus.

In-person gatherings of this type should be avoided at this time to prevent the spread of COVID-19

If you are taking part in a protest, rally or march, be cautious and stay safe.

Organize Safely

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Singing or chanting can increase the risk of transmission by expelling the virus to a greater distance. To mitigate this it is recommended that physical distancing be expanded to at least three metres or use signs or banners instead.
  • Mask usage is required by Public Health Order when indoors and strongly encouraged when outdoors. Frequent hand hygiene is important for all participants. 
  • Items must not be shared or passed back and forth among participants.
    Be Cautious
  • Organizers of any protests or rallies are encouraged to contact local public health offices for guidance.

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.
