Released on August 4, 2020
New COVID-19 maps are being launched today to provide more detailed information on the location of cases across Saskatchewan.
One map has 13 regions with comprehensive statistical information for COVID-19 activity in that region. It should be noted that the 13 new regions do not have the same geographic boundaries as the previous six regions.
The second map is broken down into 32 smaller zones, and will provide new positive and current active COVID-19 case numbers for those smaller zones.
The current online Dashboard will remain based on the previous six larger regions while work is underway to incorporate the new geographic information over the next few weeks. The Dashboard can be found here at https://dashboard.saskatchewan.ca/health-wellness.

To date, 104,279 COVID‐19 tests have been performed in Saskatchewan. As of August 2, 2020, when other provincial and national numbers were available from the Public Health Agency of Canada, Saskatchewan’s per capita rate was 76,290 people tested per million population. The national rate was 111,154 people tested per million population.

COVID-19 testing is now available to anyone who requests it, regardless of whether they have symptoms or not. A referral for testing can be made by contacting HealthLine 811. Since introducing universal testing, there has been an increase in requests to be tested with the corresponding increase in provincial testing numbers. The Saskatchewan Health Authority is working to ensure responsive service timing. Contact your physician’s office if you are experiencing worsening symptoms. If you require urgent care, call 911.
