Note: Variants of concern (VOCs) are beginning to rise in southern Saskatchewan, especially in the Moose Jaw and Weyburn regions. Residents of these areas are required to adhere to the best personal protective equipment.
Wear a mask in all public places, including all workplaces
Wash non-medical masks daily
Maintain physical distance
Wash your hands frequently
Reduce activity outside the home. Order takeaway or curbside pickups. If you can work from home, please work from home at this point.
Avoid all unnecessary movements between Moosejaw and Weiburn.
All Saskatchewan residents need to monitor cases operating in their area and adjust their activities accordingly. Active and new case information for each area can be found at: https://dashboard.saskatchewan.ca/health-wellness
If you have any symptoms, stay home and arrange for a COVID-19 test. If someone in the house has symptoms, the entire house should be left at home until the test results are available. Test information is available at the following URL: www.saskatchewan.ca/government/health-care-administration-and-provider-resources/treatment-procedures-and-guidelines/emerging-public-health-issues/2019-novel-coronavirus/testing-information..
As of April 2, screening in Saskatchewan identified 2,226 subspecies of concern: Far Northeast (2) Northwest (1), North Central (16), Saskatoon (117), Central West ( 12), reported centrally. East (32), Regina (1,578), Southwest (7), South Central (173), South East (157) zones. There are 131 cases in which the area of residence is pending.
Although these were previously reported as “estimated positives,” all screening tests are considered confirmed VOCs for public reporting and contact research purposes.
The new strain results reported today are zero. Of the 949 VOCs with strains identified by Saskatchewan whole genome sequencing, 941 are B22.214.171.124 (UK) and eight are B1.351 (SA). The Regina Zone accounts for 802 (84 percent) of confirmed strain-identified VOC cases in Saskatchewan.
These VOCs may have been initially identified by means other than screening (ie, selection of whole-genome sequences without screening), and the screening results will include whole-genome sequence results to identify strains. be careful.
Variants of identified concern cases may appear in both columns of the website, depending on the testing of that case. Adding cases identified by screening and cases that have undergone whole-genome sequencing can result in double counting of individual cases.

Public health measures
The State Public Health Order announced on Tuesday, March 9 and the Regina and Regional Amendments announced on Tuesday, March 24, are valid until April 12, 2021 and will be reviewed at that time.
Due to the increased risk of COVID-19 infection in Regina and the region, the revisions made on March 24 include: All restaurants and licensed facilities must be closed for direct dining. Also, most event venues with 30 people or less are not allowed to operate.
We also do not recommend traveling inside or outside the Regina area unless absolutely necessary. It is highly recommended that anyone who can work from home in the Regina area do so.

Keep Easter Celebration Safe
All residents of Saskatchewan are required to keep their Easter weekend safe and comply with public health recommendations and measures. Consider virtualizing your gathering and keep your Easter egg hunt only in your immediate home.
With the exception of the Regina area, private indoor meetings should be 2-3 households and cannot exceed 10 people.
In the city of Regina and its territories, all indoor personal gatherings are limited to households close to you. Individuals living alone and single parents of minor children are allowed to visit a consistent household of less than five people.
If you’re outside the Regina area and a consistent home bubble is safely gathering, pre-purchase Easter Supper groceries and have only one home shopping member. One person should wear a non-medical mask and prepare food and drink according to the appropriate food safety protocol. All food offered must be plated alone. Alternatively, consider delivering individual pieces from a restaurant or catering company.
If someone in your household feels sick with the mildest symptoms, do not continue planning and seek a COVID-19 test immediately.
We do not recommend traveling inside or outside the Regina area unless absolutely necessary. Non-required trips, including interstate trips, are highly discouraged.
