Due to the extremely high number of patients in intensive care units (ICUs) across the province, the Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) is increasing family presence restrictions in Critical Care Units across the province.

All provincial ICUs and cardiac care units in Saskatoon and Regina will implement temporary enhanced surge family presence restrictions, which means every ICU patient will be able to designate two essential family/support persons, with one person present at a time.

There is no change to end-of-life family presence, which allows two designated people at a time, in the ICUs or elsewhere.
