Saskatchewan has only one new case of COVID-19 being reported, to bring the provincial total to 316 cases with 74 considered active. 

Four more recoveries have occurred, after none yesterday, for a total of 238 recoveries province-wide. 

Four individuals remain in the hospital for COVID-19 related treatment, with three in inpatient care and one in intensive care. 

No new COVID-19 related deaths have been reported since April 11. 

Of the 316 cases in the province, 134 are travel-related, 132 are community or household transmission related, 30 have no known exposures, and 20 are still under investigation by Public Health. 

The Saskatoon area has 149 cases, while the Regina area has 70. The northern parts of the province have 71 cases, while the south has 15 cases and the central region has 11 cases. 

The 20-39 age range is reporting 114 cases, while the 40-59 age range shows a close 106 cases; 63 cases are from the 60-79 age range and nine are in the 80-plus age range.

The province has now performed 24,412 COVID-19 tests, with just over 500 tests processed since yesterday.

Public health reminds people to continue to maintain physical distancing measures, as the weather warms and it becomes more tempting to be outside. 

Preventative measures are still in place, meaning individuals should continue to maintain a two-metre distance from others in public and avoid shared surfaces. 

Provincial parks remain closed, and officials recommend checking with local municipalities about any playground closures before heading out to the park.
