COVID-19: Eighth Presumptive Positive Case Recorded

Released on March 17, 2020

Saskatchewan has its eighth presumptive positive case of COVID-19.

The resident in their 50s was tested in Regina, following travel to Vancouver.  The individual is self-isolating at home. Public Health officials are following up with individuals who had close contact with this case 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.

Travel Guidance:

The Public Health Agency of Canada is recommending residents postpone or cancel all non-essential travel outside of Canada.  All travellers are being asked to self-isolate for 14 days after returning to Canada as a precaution.

What is the difference between self-isolate and self-monitor?

Self-isolation is a precautionary approach to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 by people that have been in an area of high disease spread or in close contact with a person with COVID-19.  Stay home.  Do not attend work, school, daycare, university, social, sporting or cultural events or religious gatherings.  You may not have any symptoms or may have mild symptoms that can be managed at home.  If symptoms develop or worsen, call HealthLine 811 for assessment and direction.

Self-monitoring means watching closely for symptoms in yourself or your dependents including taking your temperature twice daily.  You do not have restrictions on attending work or school but should avoid crowded public spaces and at-risk populations (those with weakened immune systems or individuals 65 years of age and older).  If self-monitoring, have a plan on how to quickly self-isolate if you develop fever, cough or difficulty breathing.  At the first sign of symptoms, you should self-isolate.
