Travellers should keep in mind standard precautions for minimizing the spread of COVID-19.
For travellers who require proof of a negative lab PCR COVID-19 test for their airline or destination or for workplace purposes, private lab services are available to provide an independent testing service as an option for asymptomatic testing. A self-administered at home self-test (rapid antigen test) will not be accepted as valid proof of negative COVID-19 test results.
The testing is user-pay.
1. Travel Outside Saskatchewan
It is recommended that you check any restrictions or Public Health Orders that may apply in the jurisdiction to which you are travelling. It is not mandatory that you self-isolate upon your return from an out-of-province trip.
The presence of variants across Canada means an elevated risk of bringing more transmissible strains of COVID-19 home with you. COVID-19 vaccinations remain the best defense to prevent serious illness and hospitalizations. The Saskatchewan Health Authority and pharmacies throughout the province continue to provide vaccination clinics. To find a clinic near you please visit COVID-19 vaccine. Testing does not prevent the spread of COVID-19
2. International Travel
All vaccines approved for use in Canada are safe and effective.
Anyone planning to travel should confirm vaccination and negative testing requirements to enter their intended destination.
Visit the Government of Canada website for information and rules around international travel.
3. Documenting Vaccinations while Travelling/Outside Saskatchewan
If you have received a COVID-19 vaccination in another jurisdiction, your Saskatchewan health record can be updated.
