Four new positive presumptive cases of COVID-19 in Saskatchewan are being reported, bringing the total number of cases up to 20.
Three of the new cases are travel-related, while the fourth occurred following close contact with a previously reported positive case. Public health is conduction contact investigations now.
Eight of the now twenty presumptive cases in Saskatchewan have also been firmly confirmed as COVID-19 following verification from the National Microbiology Laboratory in Winnipeg.
The government of Saskatchewan declared a provincial state of emergency on Mar. 18, to aid in slowing the spread of the virus.
Officials are recommending that businesses and residents adhere to the state of emergency guidelines and limit physical interaction in public whenever possible.
Additionally, surveillance information on cases and testing has now been made available online at saskatchewan.ca/COVID19, as well as a self-assessment tool for those in need.
