Halloween

Remember: if you are going to participate in Halloween activities, do so safely.  Don’t attend or host large events that exceed gathering size limits under current public health orders or Reopen Saskatchewan Guidelines.  This includes house parties, public events and pub crawls.  Activities that do not follow public health orders or Reopen Saskatchewan Guidelines have been shown to be possible “superspreaders” and hosts/businesses can be fined under the Public Health Act.
