COVID-19 cases are on the rise in Saskatchewan
November 16, 2020 – Kii-kay-taak, let’s heal. COVID-19 cases are on the rise in Saskatchewan. Yesterday the province reported 181 new cases, bringing the total currently active cases to 1807, and total cases to date to 5,182. Remember that mandatory masking starts today for populations greater than 5000, and to be kind to each other and our healthcare workers. If you have symptoms stay home and monitor yourself, take the online self-assessment at Saskatchewan.ca/COVID19 and get tested.
Please continue to be diligent and help stop the spread of COVID-19 by:
- Keeping 2 metres away from others when in public and wearing a mask.
- Limiting gatherings and ensure sizes do not exceed public health orders.
- Washing your hands often or using alcohol-based sanitizer.
- Do not touch your eyes, nose, mouth or mask with unwashed hands.
- Stay home if you are unwell; seek health care services when you help.
- Regularly monitor your health for any COVID-19 symptoms.
COVID-19 is transmitted through coughing and sneezing (droplet transmission), and by touching surfaces with the virus on it and then touching your mouth, nose or eyes before washing your hands.
