Re-Open Saskatchewan

Our government introduced a methodical phased-in approach called Re-Open Saskatchewan to lift restrictions slowly and responsibly on our businesses and services. The first phase focused on re-opening previously restricted medical services and allowing for some outdoor activities such as the operation of golf courses, parks and campgrounds. The second phase included re-opening retail and select personal care services.

Our government has set a target date of June 8, for Phase 3 as part of our Re-Open Saskatchewan Plan. This phase will include the reopening of:

  • remaining personal services;
  • restaurants and food services at a 50 per cent capacity limit;
  • gym and fitness facilities; and
  • places of worship.

 

The size of indoor public and private gatherings may be increased to 15 people, and outdoor gatherings will increase to 30. Physical distancing and good health hygiene must continue to be practiced for our province to continue its plan to re-open. Find the most up-to-date version of the Re-Open Saskatchewan plan at saskatchewan.ca/re-open.

If you are looking for support as we move into the next phase, I urge all constituents to please utilize our government resources listed on Saskatchewan.ca. Our government has expanded capacity within our healthcare system to allow for more candidates to qualify for a COVID-19 test. I want to thank our Saskatchewan Health Authority for their hard work and guidance as we cautiously Re-Open Saskatchewan.
