Saskatchewan continues to see a decrease in the number of COVID-19 cases in the province.

The Sask Health Authority announced Thursday that only one new case of the novel coronavirus had been found in Saskatchewan over the past 24 hours, with a further 14 having recovered from the disease.

That brings the total number of cases to 305, with 82 cases considered active, 219 having recovered and four having died.

The southern portion of the province – including Moose Jaw, Swift Current and Weyburn – has not seen a new case in nearly two weeks and remains at 15 total, with only two active cases in the region.

The Humboldt-Saskatoon region remains the hardest hit, with 147 total cases and 50 currently active.

Of the 305 cases in the province:

  • 132 cases are travellers;

  • 124 are community contacts (mass gatherings included);

  • 29 have no known exposures; and

  • 20 are under investigation by local public health.

Overall in Saskatchewan:

  • 34 of the cases are health care workers; however, the source of the infections may not be related to health care in all instances.

  • 22 cases involve people 19 years of age and under, while the remainder are adults.

  • 131 cases are in the 20-44 age range; 101 are in the 45-64 age range; and 51 are in the 65-plus range.

  • 52 per cent of the cases are males and 48 per cent are females.

A total of 21,569 tests have been conducted, giving Saskatchewan the second highest testing rate among all provinces.
