Proof of Vaccination or Negative Tests Requirements Now in Effect

Released on October 1, 2021

Starting today, proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test result will be required in Saskatchewan for public access to a range of businesses, event venues, as well as for all Government of Saskatchewan ministry, crown and agency employees.

Note that mandatory indoor masking remains in effect for all indoor public venues in the province at this time.

A list of the businesses and venues where the proof of vaccinations or a negative test result is required, as well as Q&A for businesses and a poster to support notification to customers is available at Saskatchewan.ca/covid-19

Types of Vaccination Proof Documents

Businesses and organizations have several options for checking acceptable proof of vaccination. These include:

  • A QR code/MySaskHealthRecord vaccine certificate either printed or on the patron's mobile device as a screenshot or in SK Vax Wallet;
  • A printed hard copy of MySaskHealthRecord vaccine certificate with or without a QR code;
  • Wallet cards issued at the time of vaccinations; and
  • A COVID-19 vaccination printout from Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) public health.

Businesses requiring proof of vaccination will also require ID from anyone 18 and older. Youth aged 12-17 will also need to show ID unless accompanied by an adult with proof of vaccination and ID.

Visit www.ehealthsask.ca/MySaskHealthRecord/MySaskHealthRecord/ to get your COVID-19 vaccination certificate and learn more about the SK Vax Wallet app for viewing or displaying your QR code and SK Vax Verifier app for businesses and organizations to determine if customers meet vaccination requirements.

Proof of a Negative Test

Individuals who do not have proof of vaccination have the option of providing proof of a negative COVID-19 test result from within the previous 72 hours.

A self-administered take-home rapid antigen test will not be accepted as valid proof of negative COVID-19 results and the SHA is no longer supporting testing for asymptomatic individuals at the public testing sites, preserving resources to test symptomatic and other at-risk populations.

The cost for all proof of negative test results for asymptomatic testing will be the responsibility of the individual. Individuals requiring a negative test result have several private options on the market that will provide a rapid antigen test or a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test for a fee.

A current list of locations and labs offering testing services is on Saskatchewan.ca under Where to Get Tested.

Stick it to COVID - Get Your Vaccination

Vaccination remains the most important preventative step you can take to protect yourself and those around you from COVID-19.

With increased demand for vaccination, the Saskatchewan Health Authority is adding vaccination clinics.  Watch for details on clinic locations and times listed on the SHA website.  Please note clinics are subject to change based on demand, resources, etc.  Any changes to clinic hours and location will be updated online.

A map of pharmacies participating in COVID-19 vaccinations is available at www.saskatchewan.ca/covid19-pharmacies.
