The Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) is reminding the public that all people in an SHA facility, including staff, visitors, family and patients, must follow Public Health Orders and respect one another while in and around our facilities.
COVID-19 is everywhere in Saskatchewan and following all
Public Health Orders issued by the Province of Saskatchewan is critical to keeping our population safe. SHA facilities and grounds are not exempt. While in any SHA facility, everyone must wear a medical mask at all times and follow all safety precautions outlined in the
Family Presence during Pandemic Policy . Please note that these family presence guidelines may differ based on COVID-19 activity in that particular facility, home or in the community.
If designated family members/supports refuse to wear a mask, wear it improperly or do not follow the Public Health Order and safety requirements as outlined in the safety guidelines outlined in the Family Presence during Pandemic Policy Directive, you may be refused entry to the facility or be asked to leave. If you are exempt from wearing a mask, ensure you have a copy of your exemption to show facility staff.
The SHA is a place of respect for clients, patients, residents, families, employees, and visitors. We all share the responsibility to treat each other with dignity and respect. Together, we can create and sustain a healthy, safe and caring environment we can all be proud of. Remember to honour diversity with dignity and empathy and value each person as an individual.
To ensure that you can safely enter SHA
acute care facilities, please review these simple steps:
It is everyone’s responsibility to follow the public health order and treat each other with respect at all times. Refusal to follow these rules may result in additional enforcement measures under the
Public Health Order.
