Non-Essential Interprovincial Travel Discouraged

While Saskatchewan’s current active case number is low, all other western provinces are experiencing increased COVID-19 transmission at this time and Saskatchewan continues to have a number of cases linked to interprovincial travel.  This includes flights and by road.

While interprovincial travel is permitted, public health officials are discouraging recreational travel to and from Saskatchewan.  Essential travel, including travel for agricultural production, industry, transport, medical appointments, etc. has always been permitted and will continue to be.  However, unnecessary trips should be avoided at this time.

If you must travel, look to your destination and the posted COVID-19 case and risk information.  Other jurisdictions may have requirements and/or restrictions.  You must abide by the local public health orders in the province or territory you are visiting.  If you do become symptomatic while travelling, contact the local public health assessment line for advice; you may be required to self-isolate in place.  If you choose to travel, upon your return to Saskatchewan, carefully monitor for any symptoms and consider seeking testing.

COVID-19 Testing

 COVID-19 testing is now available to anyone who requests it, regardless of whether they have symptoms or not.  A referral for testing can be made by contacting HealthLine 811 or your physician’s office if you are experiencing worsening symptoms.  If you require urgent care, call 911.
