Saskatchewan Confirms New Presumptive Cases of COVID-19

Released on March 14, 2020

Four new presumptive positive cases of COVID-19 have been identified in Saskatchewan, bringing the total number of cases in the province to six.

One resident, a health care worker in their 30s, has a recent history of travel to Nigeria and Germany, as well as Alberta.  The individual is recovering in northern Saskatchewan.

Two presumptive cases are in their 40s and live in the same household in Regina.  One recently travelled to Vancouver for a dental conference at which an attendee was later confirmed to have COVID-19.  The two Saskatchewan residents were tested March 13 and are self-isolating while they recover.

The fourth new case is an individual in their 20s with a history of travel to Tennessee, U.S., who was tested in Regina and is now self-isolating and recovering in their home community.

Public Health officials are following up with individuals who had close contact with all of these cases and who may be at risk of developing COVID-19.  You will be notified if you are a close contact and need to take further measures.

The Federal Government and Saskatchewan’s Chief Medical Health Officer recommend returning to Canada and avoiding non-essential international travel until further notice.

All travellers returning from international destinations - including the United States – need to self-isolate and monitor their health for 14 days upon return.  Travellers returning from within Canada are advised to self-monitor for 14 days upon return.  Members of the public who have travelled outside the province in the previous 14 days should not visit hospitals or long-term care facilities.
