- Enhanced cleaning and disinfection should take place in workplaces, public spaces and recreational facilities.
Message from the Ministry of Health
To reduce the spread of COVID-19, the Government of Saskatchewan has declared a State of Emergency and enacted Public Health Orders. The complete public health orders are available at Saskatchewan.ca/COVID19.
All travelers returning from international destinations – including the U.S. – are subject to a mandatory self-isolation order. Anyone identified by a Medical Health Officer as a close contact of someone with COVID-19 shall go into mandatory self-isolation for 14 days from the date of having been exposed. Exempted are truckers, airline, rail, and work crews that are required to work in order to maintain business continuity and are supervised by Infection Prevention and Control Officers or Occupational Health and Safety in the workplace.
Wash your hands frequently. Maintain physical distance of two metres. Do not attend any events, public or private, where you cannot maintain that social distance. Self-monitor for symptoms in yourself or your dependents and stay home if you are ill with even mild symptoms of cough or fever.
