PREMIER CAUTIONS AGAINST LARGE GATHERINGS AS ACTIVE CASES RISE
With active COVID-19 cases gradually rising in Saskatchewan, the Premier is reminding residents to use caution when gathering in groups as the province heads into the fall.
Active cases of COVID-19 have increased for four of the past five days in Saskatchewan.
The province reached its peak in active cases with 322 at the end of July. After declining for 28 of the next 47 days and hitting a low of 29 on Sept. 2, active cases are on the rise again.

The Premier reminded residents to keep gatherings under 30 people, maintain proper physical distancing with people outside your household and avoid sharing food.
