City of Saskatoon COVID-19 Update: March 14, 2020 AM

For immediate release: March 14, 2020 - 11:03am

To help share reliable and accurate information for our community, the City has created a webpage dedicated to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) information.

“Everyone can find facts on how to protect yourself and family from COVID-19, answers to the questions we’re being asked the most, news releases and links to trusted health-related information,” says Pamela Goulden-McLeod, Director of Emergency Management.

In terms of action, the City has activated its Emergency Operations Centre to coordinate its planning efforts.

Since January, the City has been monitoring and actively engaged in assessing the impact of COVID-19 and continues to be in close contact with provincial and federal health agencies.

 “Our top priorities are protecting the health, safety, plus overall well-being of everyone in our community – as well as maintaining essential services to our citizens,” Goulden-McLeod says.

Goulden-McLeod reminds everyone it is important to keep up to date with the current risk level in Saskatchewan.

“This needs to be a team effort – responding most effectively will take a whole community approach,” she says. “Every group, business and person can play a role to help keep us all healthy and safe. This will not come down to be one organization’s or one person’s job to solve.”

As it becomes available in a rapidly changing environment, the City will continue to provide more information on the webpage and through social media platforms.
