  • 76 have no known exposures; and
  • 53 are under investigation by local public health.

Provincial State of Emergency Extended and Measures Continue

The Provincial State of Emergency has been extended for two weeks.

While new case numbers remain low, residents are reminded that COVID-19 is still present in Saskatchewan.  Public health orders remain in effect, including the order limiting public and private gatherings to no more than 10 people.

The declaration of a community-transmitted outbreak in Saskatoon linked to two large family gatherings, reinforces the importance of following public health orders.

Everyone should continue to take measures to stop the spread of COVID-19, including:

  • Practice proper cough and sneezing etiquette (into a tissue or the bend of your elbow);
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water; if soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer;
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands;
  • Clean and disinfect your home regularly;
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick;
  • Stay home if you are sick; and
  • Practice physical distancing.

We all have a responsibility to minimize the spread of the disease.

If you are experiencing symptoms of fever, cough, shortness of breath, headaches, aches and pains, sore throat, chills, runny nose or a loss of your sense of taste or smell, contact HealthLine 811 or your family physician for advice on whether you should be tested for COVID-19.  You can also take the online self-assessment at www.saskatchewan.ca/COVID19.
