The Saskatchewan Health Authority is issuing an advisory after confirmation of a positive COVID-19 individual who was likely infectious while attending businesses in Leask. Anyone who attended the following business during the times listed should be self-monitoring for symptoms for 14 days after their visit, or seek a testing referral by contacting HealthLine 811.
In cases where anyone tests positive for COVID-19, a contact investigation immediately follows where public health reaches out to anyone who may be linked to a positive case and provide them with information on testing and self-isolation. If health officials are uncertain that they have identified all known close contacts, they may take further action to notify the community about possible locations where positive individuals may have attended while symptomatic.
As contact tracing efforts continue in many areas of the Saskatchewan, health officials are strongly reminding all Saskatchewan residents to ensure they are personally following public health orders and guidelines.
More information on private and public gatherings, including how to create extended households can be found at saskatchewan.ca/COVID19 under Public Health Measures – Public and Private Gatherings.
COVID-19 is still present in Saskatchewan and we all have a responsibility to minimize the spread of the disease. Together, we can make a positive difference and keep our communities safe.
