The Saskatchewan Health Authority is reminding Saskatchewan residents to not let their guard down when it comes to COVID-19.
As people take advantage of the warm weather to travel and extend their social circle, they should do so in a gradual and controlled way, keeping physical distancing and hand washing top of mind.
Residents are encouraged to remain vigilant and to continue implementing the proper COVID-19 protocols, including following physical distancing guidelines to maintain two metres of separation, implementing proper hygiene practices and complying with provincial health orders, including limiting the size of outdoor gatherings to 30.
“What happens tomorrow depends on what happens today," states Dr. David Torr, Public Health Incident Command Centre Co-lead for the Saskatchewan Health Authority. “COVID spread depends on how much we let our guard down.”
Anyone with symptoms should protect themselves and others, especially the vulnerable, by staying home, self-isolating and getting tested for COVID-19.
It is important to remember that COVID-19 has no boundaries; it affects us all. As a province, we have a responsibility to support each other through these challenging times, to stay positive, and to continue working together in the spirit of kindness and generosity that defines our province.
