  • 299 have no known exposures; and

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.

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.
