The Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) is alerting the public of an increase in COVID-19 cases in the Meadow Lake area and is urging Saskatchewan residents to follow public health measures and personal safety precautions to prevent the spread of the virus, including maintaining a physical distance of two metres from others and masking when that's not possible, frequent hand hygiene and self-isolating if you develop any symptoms of COVID-19.
In order to keep everyone in SHA facilities and care homes safe during this time, family presence/visitation is being limited in to compassionate reasons only in the Meadow Lake Hospital effective Tuesday, December 8th at 8:00am. The measure will be reassessed in four weeks.
The decision to restrict family presence is not taken lightly. These measures are in place to keep you, your loved ones, and health care workers safe. The Saskatchewan Health Authority is asking the public for their support and cooperation in order to contain the spread of the virus.
