With the continued increase in COVID-19 cases, SHA is implementing the next phase of its
surge plan. Our goal is to avoid broad service reductions in the health care system with targeted slowdowns of some services to minimize patient, client and resident impact.
As such, some SHA facilities are currently experiencing temporary disruptions to services and may be temporarily closed to the public.
Given the rapidly changing nature of this situation, we recommend that you call to confirm if or how a facility/service is affected before attempting to access services.
More information on COVID, including the
self-assessment tool, is available at
saskatchewan.ca/covid19. Please remember to call 911 for emergencies.

COVID-19 outbreaks in Saskatchewan can be viewed on the
Government of Saskatchewan's COVID-19 website. Some outbreaks may not be reflected in these listings.
In an outbreak situation, family presence is restricted to Level 3 - End of Life only (SHA Family Presence Policy Directive) unless otherwise communicated by the local Medical Health Officer.
Care teams are encouraged to support virtual family presence when restrictions limit in-person visits.

Visitor/family presence has been limited to compassionate reasons only in all long-term care facilities, affiliates and personal care homes effective November 19, 2020. No other visitors are allowed into these facilities at this time. Limitations are in place until January 15, 2021 when they will be reviewed by the Chief Medical Health Officer of Saskatchewan. Acute care facilities are not included in these guidelines, unless expressly stated for individual acute care sites.
Compassionate reasons may include family or support persons during end-of-life care, and long-term care or personal care home residents whose quality of life or care needs are unmet. The decision to restrict visitor/family presence is not taken lightly. These measures are in place to keep residents/patients, their loved ones and health care workers safe. Your support and cooperation will help contain the spread of the virus.
We recognize how difficult this time is for patients and families. The decision to continue to limit visitation is guided by the need to protect our residents, patients and health care teams during COVID-19.
Further information is available on the
Government of Saskatchewan website.
