Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe and chief medical health officer Dr. Saqib Shahab will provide a live COVID-19 update at 11:30 a.m.this event will be streamed live on CTVNewsRegina.ca and CTVNewsSaskatoon.ca .
The province’s current public health order , introduced on Sept. 16, mandates mask use in indoor public spaces, including schools. It also requires proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test for public access to a variety of locations.
According to a news release from the Government of Saskatchewan, the public health order will be reevaluated by Jan. 31.
Even as COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations decline in the province, health officials said it’s not time to ease up on public health guidelines as they look to avoid a post-holiday season fifth wave.
Saskatchewan’s chief medical health officer Dr. Saqib Shahab said last week that restrictions would likely remain in place through the holiday season.
