COVID-19: Saskatchewan RCMP receiving calls about people violating public health orders

Saskatchewan RCMP officers are working with Saskatchewan Health Authorities to investigate calls about people violating public health orders and not abiding by the mandatory self-isolation.

The mandatory order came into effect March 21. Anyone returning to Saskatchewan from international destinations are required to self-isolate for 14 days. Premier Scott Moe said the PHO was to slow the spread of COVID-19 in the province.

The RCMP, in a statement March 23, said they are working closely with Saskatchewan Health Authorities to investigate the PHO violations.

“To date there have been no charges, fines, or arrests by the Saskatchewan RCMP for these matters since the PHO,” said the RCMP.

Despite the added work, the RCMP continues to provide services to the public.

“We would like to reassure you that during the current rapidly evolving situation, our service delivery and commitment to keeping your community safe remains unchanged.

The RCMP said they will continue to work with Saskatchewan Public Health to determine the best way to ensure the safety of the public and front-line officers.
