This public health alert is being issued as a precaution. In general, businesses in the province have been compliant with public health measures and in this case the employee was wearing a mask in both locations. We know that COVID-19 is easily transmitted and want to ensure residents are aware if they have been at these business during the listed times. As of July 14, COVID-19 testing is available to anyone, regardless of whether they have symptoms or not.
The public is reminded that during the COVID-19 pandemic it is important to continue to take precautions to protect yourself, your families and everyone who lives in the community. This includes physical distancing to maintain a 2-metre separation at all times, frequent hand washing, and self-isolating if you are sick.
It is also important to adhere to public health orders and municipal government guidelines, including limiting your social circles, travel restrictions and not attending large 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.
