COVID-19 Update & Information

September 14, 2020

The Town continues to monitor the Province’s Public Health Order and their phased Re-Open Saskatchewan Plan in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Re-Open Plan is available at www.saskatchewan.ca and provides information affecting the operations of several Town facilities and programs:

  • Town Office – open to the public Monday to Friday from 9:00am to 1:00pm
  • Recreation Centre - open for mezzanine bookings and 2020-21 ice season
  • Hall - North club room open for bookings
  • Campground – open by reservation only until the end of September
  • Fitness Centre – open August 15 with key card access
  • Sportsgrounds – open June 22
  • Playgrounds – open June 12

The Re-Open Plan indicates that the following recommendations should remain in place through all five phases:

  • Individuals should continue working from home if they can do so effectively.
  • Physical distancing must be maintained, wherever possible.
  • People must stay at home when they are sick.
  • Vulnerable individuals, such as seniors and those with underlying health conditions, should continue to exercise caution and minimize high-risk exposures, such as public outings.
  • Personal hygiene will continue to be a key prevention measure.
  • Enhanced cleaning and disinfection should take place in workplaces, public spaces and recreational facilities.

Late payment charges for both utility accounts and accounts receivables have been suspended until September 30, 2020 to provide customers with the flexibility to delay bill payments without penalty. In addition, utility disconnections for non-payment of accounts are also suspended until September 30, 2020 to help ensure that all residents have access to water.

To reduce the risk of transmission, the following remains in effect:

  • Water meter upgrades and staff-obtained actual meter readings are suspended.


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 social 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.

Unsure about your symptoms? Use the self-assessment tool at www.saskatchewan.ca/COVID19 to determine if you should contact HealthLine 811.
