Beach Guidelines

For general workplace guidelines, please refer to COVID-19 Workplace Information. All operators in Saskatchewan must be in compliance with these guidelines. The information below provides guidelines for beaches in Saskatchewan.

  • People exhibiting signs of illness should not enter beach areas. If you think you may be sick, use the Government of Saskatchewan's self-assessment tool for COVID-19 and follow the subsequent directions.
  • Individuals from different groups must maintain a physical distance of two metres outdoors, indoors, on the beach and in the water. Towels and beach gear should be set up with four metres between groups to allow physical distancing to be maintained for those entering or exiting the area.
  • There must be no more individuals per group than allowed under the private and public gathering restrictions.
  • Towels, beach toys, food and other items should not be shared between members of different groups.
  • If the beach area is full, please use adjacent grass areas, where available, to ensure group and individual physical distancing is maintained.
  • Bring your own picnic table covers, cleaning supplies, hand hygiene supplies and other personal items.
  • Common contact areas and surfaces must be cleaned and disinfected by park or beach staff regularly. For unstaffed beaches, it's recommended that users clean and disinfect surfaces before and after using (e.g. picnic tables), and practise frequent hand hygiene, especially before and after consuming food.
  • Frequently wash your hands with soap and water or use hand sanitizer approved by Health Canada (DIN or NPN number) if you come into contact with public or common touch surfaces (e.g. washroom facilities, shower taps, benches, tables, playground equipment).
  • Where possible, access to beaches should be controlled and occupancy limited (e.g. limit parking, erect barriers, set maximum occupancy, signage).
  • Display posters in common spaces reminding beach users of physical distancing and beach rules (e.g. parking lot, beaches, picnic areas, trailheads).
  • Advise users that if an area is busy, such as an outdoor shower facility, picnic shelter or beach, come back when it's not busy or use another area.
  • Shower facilities and change rooms are permitted.
  • Washroom facilities must be open with increased cleaning and disinfecting. Operators must ensure washrooms are stocked with soap and water or hand sanitizer approved by Health Canada (DIN or NPN number).
  • Food and beverage services are permitted and must operate in line with the Restaurants and Licensed Establishments Guidelines.
  • Event are not permitted on beaches at this time.
  • Recreation rentals (e.g. kayaks, paddle boats, life jackets) are permitted. Rental equipment must be cleaned and disinfected after each use and should only be shared among members of the same household.
  • Publicly accessible in-water play equipment (e.g. slides, floating docks, inflatable play structures) are permitted. Water playground operators (e.g. inflatable water playground businesses) must put measures in place to limit the number of patrons to support physical distancing.
