Of those cases, 33 are now confirmed positive and 19 are still presumptive positive. Since opening earlier this week, the Roy Romanov Provincial Laboratory has processed 4,536 potential COVID-19 cases in the province.

The majority of cases now in Saskatchewan are individuals who are adults, with one case occurring in an individual in their late teens. 

Public health is also reporting that 62 per cent of cases are male, and 38 per cent are female. 

Officials are continuing their contact investigation, and those who have been in contact with these new cases will be notified directly.

Saskatchewan residents are to continue practicing social distancing, by avoiding contact with others and keeping a minimum distance of 2 metres when in public spaces.
