Mandatory Masking Requirements

Guidance on Cloth and Non-medical Masks

 

While the province continues to recommend wearing masks whenever you are outside the home, wearing a non-medical mask will now be required in all indoor public spaces in Saskatchewan.  Information on masks and their use and what qualifies as an indoor public space is available at http://www.saskatchewan.ca/masks.

  • The list of indoor spaces may be amended for clarity; however, if you unsure if a location qualifies as an "indoor public space”, defer to wearing the mask – choose the option that promotes public safety.
  • Masking in school settings is described in the back to school plans as set out by the respective school divisions.
  • Masking guidance for childcare centres and daycares is described in the Re-Open Saskatchewan Plan.
  • Mandatory masking posters to assist businesses and organizations to inform their customers are available at www.saskatchewan.ca/covid19-posters.

COVID Outbreaks in Saskatchewan

The declaration of a COVID-19 outbreak is used by Public Health to mobilize and coordinate a response to the infection. It is not necessarily an indicator of risk to the public.

 


SELF ASSESSMENT TOOL

Use the SELF-ASSESSMENT TOOL to determine if you should be tested for COVID-19.

 

 

What to do if you’ve been exposed to COVID-19
Step 1: Get tested.

Step 2: Self-isolate at home. Even if your test is negative, if you were notified by the COVID Alert App that you’ve been exposed to COVID-19 you must still self-isolate at home for the full 14 days from the date you received your exposure notification.

Public health will contact you about your test results. You can also register for MySaskHealthRecord to see your test results.
