Individuals who were at this location during the specified times must immediately self-isolate for 14 days following the date of exposure.

COVID-19 is everywhere in Saskatchewan. It is the responsibility of every person to strictly adhere to all public health orders and measures, including:

·        Keep 2 metres away from others when in public and wear a mask.

·        Limit gatherings and ensure gathering sizes do not exceed public health orders.

·        Wash your hands often with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

·        Do not touch your eyes, nose, mouth or mask with unwashed hands.

·        Stay home if you are unwell; seek health care services when you need help.

·        Regularly monitor your health for any COVID-19 symptoms.

When an individual tests positive for COVID-19, a contact investigation immediately follows. If health officials determine an increased risk of exposure to the public, they direct that a public service announcement (PSA) be issued requiring impacted individuals to self-isolate. The PSA is not a commentary on a location or a business and its practices. Reasonable efforts are made to inform the business or location in advance of public notification.
