COVID-19: Daily update on changes to programs and services – April 23, 2020

For immediate release: April 23, 2020 - 4:45pm
FI20-1196

The City is doing its part to flatten the curve of COVID-19 cases in Saskatoon. We have made many staffing and service changes so that our employees can safely deliver services to residents and to make sure people remain physically apart from one another. This way we can all work together by staying apart – it will protect the health of essential frontline healthcare staff, core service workers and first-responders. These actions in turn protect all of us.

Reminder: Golf Courses Closed Until At Least May 15

A reminder that golf courses are currently closed following the Public Health Order (March 20, 2020) from the Government of Saskatchewan requiring the closure of all recreational and entertainment facilities - do not enter the premises at any time. This is particularly important for us to be able to get civic golf courses ready for a potential opening date of May 15. By staying off the golf courses you will allow our staff to safely complete the landscaping and other work they need to do to ensure you can have a safe summer playing golf.

Reminder: Physical Distancing Even When Outdoors

We recognize the importance of getting fresh air and exercise, especially as the weather gets nicer. That’s why spaces including parks, trails, dog parks and public squares remain open. But please remember to maintain a safe, two-metre physical distance away from others even in outdoor public places, as shown on this information sheet. Failure to practice safe physical distancing may result in a loss of public access.
