COVID-19 Recoveries to be Updated

The Ministry of Health and Saskatchewan Health Authority continue to ensure that public reporting of COVID-19 cases reflects current, active case counts including those who require hospital care.  Starting today, the reporting database is being updated to reconcile a significant backlog in the number of recoveries and these will be reflected in the daily case statistics.  This adjustment will occur over the next few days.
