Visitor restrictions remain in effect for Lloydminster Hospital as they are for all Saskatchewan health facilities.

The public is reminded that everyone needs to continue to take precautions to protect themselves, their families and everyone who lives in the community. COVID-19 is present in Saskatchewan and Alberta, and we all have a responsibility to minimize the spread of the disease.

Physical distancing is something that everyone needs to be doing all the time, every time, to reduce the spread of COVID-19. 

It is also important for everyone to follow the guidelines for hand washing, social distancing and self-isolating shared by provincial and municipal governments to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and protect our most vulnerable populations. Together we can make a positive difference in our community by reducing the spread.
