Public Health Order Extended to January 31
November 25, 2021
Saskatchewan’s current public health order will be extended to January 31, 2022.
Under the current public health order, masking is mandatory in all indoor public spaces including schools, and proof of vaccination or negative test requirements are in place for public access to a list of establishments, businesses and event venues. The current public health orders are available at saskatchewan.ca/covid-19.
Municipalities, businesses, workplaces and event organizers may also require proof of vaccination or negative testing beyond those places that are described in the public health order.
Anyone requiring a proof of negative COVID-19 test must acquire their results through a private provider offering testing services. The lab will provide a verified, negative test certificate, including your name, birthday, type of test, date and time of sample collection, test result and will be signed by the test operator. At home self-tests are only to be used as an asymptomatic screening tool and cannot be accepted as proof of negative COVID-19 test.
The public health order will be reassessed at the end of January.
Stick it to COVID – Get Your Vaccination
Vaccination remains the best long-term protection against COVID-19. Even if you have contracted COVID-19, you should be vaccinated as it provides superior and lasting protection compared to the immune response generated after infection alone.
The Saskatchewan Health Authority is holding vaccination clinics throughout the province with vaccinations now available for children five to 11 years of age. Clinic locations and times are listed on the SHA website. Any changes to clinic hours and location will be updated online.
A map of pharmacies participating in COVID-19 vaccinations is available at www.saskatchewan.ca/covid19-pharmacies.
COVID-19 vaccinations are also available at most SHA operated flu shot clinics, so residents can receive both flu and COVID-19 vaccinations at the same time and location. COVID-19 vaccinations can be booked using the same online flu shot appointment tool (www.4flu.ca) or by telephone at 1-833-SASKVAX (1-833-727-5829). If you need both a COVID and flu shot, only one appointment is needed. Health staff are trained to offer both vaccines to those eligible.
