COVID-19: Daily Update on Changes to Programs and Services, June 18, 2020

For immediate release: June 18, 2020 - 4:03pm
FI20-1331

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 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. 

Water Quality Reminder for Businesses Reopening in Phase 4  

An important step for businesses re-opening after weeks of no activity is to run water taps to fully flush the plumbing system with fresh water. Recent water quality test results at an industrial facility confirmed fresh water going into the building, but water quality changes due to stagnant water within the building. As the Province’s Re-Open Saskatchewan plan allows for more businesses to resume, we encourage businesses to follow inspection and flushing recommendations at saskatoon.ca/plumbing. This will apply for all businesses as they re-open if they haven’t used their water for a while, for the safety of staff and customers. 

Please visit saskatoon.ca/covid-19 for timely updates from the City of Saskatoon on everything you need to know to stay safe.
