Re-Open Saskatchewan Plan Updated, Proceeding on May 4

Released on May 1, 2020

Saskatchewan will begin Phase 1 of the Re-Open Saskatchewan plan on Monday, May 4, 2020, gradually and slowly lifting selected restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The staged lifting of restrictions will not apply to the communities of La Loche and Lloydminster, which are currently managing outbreaks of COVID-19 cases.

Phase 1 of the plan allows public access to previously restricted medical services: dentistry, optometry, physical therapy, optician services, podiatry, occupational therapy and chiropractic treatment.  It also provides specific guidelines related to parks and campgrounds, boat launches, fishing and golf courses.

More information has been added to the Re-Open Saskatchewan plan (download PDF at https://publications.saskatchewan.ca/api/v1/products/105097/formats/117566/download).

It includes:

  • Guidelines for drive-in or remote worship (page 23)
  • More information for retail stores (pages 8 and 31)
  • Additional clarification for golf course operators (page 37)
  • More information for greenhouse operators (page 36)
  • Guidance on outdoor individual recreational activities (page 39)
  • Information about parks, campgrounds and fishing access (page 40)

The province reminds all residents that a Public Health Order (https://www.saskatchewan.ca/government/health-care-administration-and-provider-resources/treatment-procedures-and-guidelines/emerging-public-health-issues/2019-novel-coronavirus/public-health-measures/public-health-orders) remains in place.  It requires people to limit any gatherings to no more than 10 people, continue physical distancing of two metres, and stay home if they are sick, to help protect the health and safety of individuals and the population.  People planning to form an extended household group should continue to exercise extreme caution.

Anyone experiencing fever, cough or shortness of breath should contact HealthLine 811 or their family physician for advice on whether to be tested for COVID-19.  An online self-assessment tool is also available at www.saskatchewan.ca/COVID19
