Covid masks

Effective today, Friday September 17th, a public health order will bring back mandatory masking for all indoor public spaces in Saskatchewan. 

New Measures

Premier Scott Moe announced in a Facebook post “that new measures are coming to the province to combat the fourth wave,” according to Global News. Officials have said that the order is initially planned to be lifted in late October, by which time a full proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test requirement will be fully implemented in the province. However, indoor youth athletics will be exempt from the masking order for those under the age of 18 while they are actively engaged in athletic activity.

Mandatory Vaccine

Additionally, all employees of the government of Saskatchewan ministries, Crowns and agencies will now be mandated to get vaccinated as well as show proof of full vaccination by October 1st, the same date a provincial requirement for proof of vaccination or negative COVID test will be implemented.
