Starting Tuesday, health officials say residents can have two family members or support persons identified for visits, with one person allowed in the facility at a time.
Patients in intensive care and those receiving palliative care can have two people present at the same time as long as they keep a physical distance.
Visitors will be expected to follow health-care guidelines — such as wearing a mask — to protect others against the spread of COVID-19.
Saskatchewan is reporting one new infection in the far north, bringing the province’s total number of cases to 796.
