COVID-19, and its variants, are still very much present in Saskatchewan. Persons infected with or exposed to COVID-19 should take all precautions as advised by Public Health and take all reasonable measures to significantly reduce the risk of infecting others.

Call HealthLine 811, your physician or nurse practitioner if you develop symptoms; you may develop symptoms from two to 14 days following exposure to the virus that causes COVID-19.

It is important to note the following:

Protect Yourself Today!

The Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) is strongly encouraging all Saskatchewan residents 12 years of age and older to be immunized with both doses. COVID -19 variants are continuing to develop and spread, and are more transmissible than the initial COVID-19 virus. Vaccines are proving to be effective in protecting individuals from serious illness against these variants, and high vaccination rates in our province will help curb the spread.

Visit a participating pharmacy in your neighborhood, book an appointment at an SHA clinicOpens in new window, or visit one of our drive-thru, walk-in or pop-up clinics — there are many options available to be immunized.
