Travel Information

Travelers should keep in mind standard precautions for minimizing the spread of COVID-19.

Travel Guidance

Top

1. Travel Within Saskatchewan

If you plan to travel within the province for non-essential or recreational purposes, be aware that there are guidelines and potential restrictions that could affect your trip.

Golf courses and other outdoor individual recreation pursuits are now permitted in Saskatchewan in accordance with the guidelines in the Re-Open Saskatchewan Plan. Long-term campsites with self-supporting infrastructure (sewer and water) in private campgrounds and regional parks will reopen as of June 1, 2020, also in accordance with these guidelines. Only Saskatchewan residents will be allowed to camp in Saskatchewan provincial parks.

2. Travel Outside Saskatchewan

While interprovincial travel is permitted, it is public health’s recommendation to limit interprovincial travel if possible.

Interprovincial Travel

At this time, it is not mandatory that you self-isolate for 14 days upon your return from an out-of-province trip. Self-isolation is only mandatory for international travel. However, it is still recommended that you take all precautions and maintain a minimum of 2 metre distance with persons outside your extended household group both while travelling and upon your return if you do choose to travel against recommendations. People who enter or re-enter Saskatchewan should self-monitor for 14 days and self-isolate at the first sign of even mild symptoms.

Residents of other provinces coming to Saskatchewan (for example, to visit family) should observe all public health measures, including physical distancing and restrictions on the maximum number of people allowed to gather.

4. International Travel

Travel Outside Canada

To limit the spread of COVID-19, the Government of Canada advises avoiding all non-essential travel outside of Canada.

If you must travel internationally, see Health Canada for what you need to know.

Returning to Canada

Travellers returning from international destinations (including the United States) are subject to a mandatory self-isolation public health order and federal quarantine requirements. Violation of the public health order may result in a $2,000 fine.

When you return to the province after a period of time in another country, it is mandatory to take the following measures.

  • Self-isolate for 14 days.
  • Self-monitor for respiratory or flu-like symptoms for 14 days.
  • Consider preparations you can make in advance to ensure your comfort during this 14-day period.
  • Call HealthLine 811 if you develop respiratory or flu-like symptoms.
  • For general questions on travel recommendations and prevention measures, email COVID19@health.gov.sk.ca.

Medical Coverage Outside of Canada

Extra medical insurance is recommended when residents travel internationally. Health service costs are often much higher than in Saskatchewan. If a Saskatchewan resident receives emergency medical or hospital care while outside Canada, they are responsible for paying the difference between the amount charged and the amount the Ministry of Health reimburses.

Please note: Saskatchewan Health provides limited coverage for emergency care outside of Canada. You are covered for only $100 (CAN) per day for inpatient services and up to $50 (CAN) for an outpatient hospital visit.

As COVID-19 is not a pre-existing medical condition, treatment may be covered by most travel insurance policies. However, that may change as insurers update their policies. Please check with your insurance company.

If you have questions about your Saskatchewan health coverage, call eHealth Saskatchewan at 1‑800‑667‑7551.

There is an increased risk of more severe outcomes for Canadians 65 and over, and those with compromised immune systems or underlying medical conditions.

Staying in a Hotel After Travelling

People returning from international travel can stay in a hotel as long as they do not have any respiratory symptoms (e.g. fever, cough, shortness of breath).

While staying at a hotel, you should take every precaution to protect yourself against the virus.

  • Practice proper coughing and sneezing etiquette (into the bend of your elbow).
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoiding large crowds and practice physical distancing (do not shake hands, hug or kiss, keeping a distance of at least 2 metres from others).

If you are feeling ill during travel, you must avoid staying at a hotel and contact local public health authorities for direction.
