Expanded Public Health Order For Mandatory Self-Isolation, Gatherings
The Chief Medical Health Officer is updating the public health order under The Public Health Act to further reduce the risk of potential COVID-19 transmission in the province. At the same time, Premier Scott Moe today signed an order pursuant to the provincial State of Emergency directing that all orders of the government and Chief Medical Health Officer must be followed and that law enforcement agencies in Saskatchewan have the full authority to enforce those orders.
Moe said he was particularly concerned that some individuals returning from international travel were not following the 14 day self-isolation policy.
“I know that the vast majority of Saskatchewan people are taking their personal responsibility seriously and following this order,” Moe said. “But a few are not. This is not a suggestion. It is not a guideline. It is the law and it must be followed.”
In consultation with the Minister of Health, the following measures are effective immediately:
Effective March 23, 2020
As of March 20, 2020, Saskatchewan has six new, presumptive positive cases. The province now has 26 cases of COVID-19: eight cases are confirmed and 18 cases are presumptive.
Twenty-four of the 26 cases are well enough to self-isolate at home at present; two individuals are currently in hospital, admitted for medical reasons not related to respiratory illness.
Public health is actively compiling additional information on this case; additional detail is not yet available.
Public health officials are completing contact investigations on all cases.
Online Current information on self-isolation, personal protection measures and information for care providers is available at www.saskatchewan.ca/COVID19. Use the online symptom self assessment tool to determine if you should contact HealthLine 811.
