Saskatchewan residents will be continuing to adhere to the current public health orders until at least April 26, as the provincial government has extended the review date another two weeks.
The extension includes public health restrictions originally announced on March 9 and placed on the province as a whole, including the mandatory face mask order, gathering limitations, and household contact restrictions.
It also includes the increased lockdown measures placed on Regina and surrounding area that were revised on March 24, which closed dine-in restaurant services and public venues, and restricted contact between households.
Travel is still not recommended in or out of the Regina area unless absolutely necessary, and individuals in Regina are advised to work from home whenever possible.
Moose Jaw and Weyburn residents are also being advised once again to practice stronger personal protective measures due to increased variant of concern cases being reported, although public health has not revised health orders for the area yet.
