Travel in Affected Communities

Last week, everyone was asked in the affected areas to take the following steps to protect yourself and others, and reduce further spread of COVID-19:

  1. Stay in your home community as much as possible.
  2. Self-isolate and get tested if you are feeling unwell at all.
  3. Self-isolate and get tested if you have been in contact with anyone who is known to have tested positive.
  4. Limit your interpersonal contacts and group gatherings as much as possible.

Given the continued increase of active cases, the Government of Saskatchewan is working with the leaders of all communities where a significant number of cases exist to enact further restrictions on all non-essential travel into and out of their communities.  This includes travel between Hutterite communities.  It is recognized that some essential travel will be required and that will be limited to a small number of designated individuals for each community.

COVID-19 Testing

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.

General public inquiries may be directed to COVID19@health.gov.sk.ca.
