Saskatchewan Government's Plan to Re-open the Economy




Saskatchewan Government's Plan to Re-open the Economy

Re-open Saskatchewan is a plan that includes five phases to gradually and
carefully re-open businesses and services across Saskatchewan.
 

All businesses will be required to continue following physical distancing and strict cleaning and disinfection practices, to protect customers and employees.

Members of the public are expected to follow physical distancing rules and to stay home if they are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms. 

It is important to note that the timing and list of businesses/workplaces included in each phase may change, depending on increases in virus transmission numbers and other factors.

A basic summary of the re-opening phases are listed below and more details for each phase can be found by following the links:
