Saskatchewan Public Health Measures - updated December 19th
The current public health measures in Saskatchewan have been difficult for some people to understand.
Here is a summary of some of the current rules for Saskatchewan residents:
You must continue to wear a mask in all indoor public spaces,
Gatherings inside a private home are limited to immediate household members (people you currently live with) only.
Single individuals (a person who lives on their own) are allowed to meet with one household of less than five people in total. The household they meet with must always be the same one (so a single person cannot meet with one household and then another and then another).
- Outdoor gatherings are limited to a maximum of 10 people. (People in attendance must ensure that physical distancing of at least two metres between households is maintained).
Co-parenting arrangements (between divorced or separated parents) are permitted to continue.
Caregivers, support personnel and tradespersons are permitted in the home.
Visits to long-term care and personal care homes are suspended except for compassionate reasons.
All bars, restaurants and taverns are limited to seat four at a single table.
- Indoor public banquets, conferences, wedding and funeral receptions in public venues will be limited to 30 people. Food or beverages may not be present or served.
- All places of worship must reduce capacity to 30 people, including wedding, funeral, and baptismal services.
And starting Friday, December 25th, all retail services must reduce their capacity to 50 per cent and large big box retailers (like Costco, Superstore, Wal-Mart, etc.), must reduce to 25 per cent of capacity. This means there will likely be line-ups to enter many stores.
