Saskatoon's Guide to Re-opening

On April 23, the Government of Saskatchewan announced the Re-Open Saskatchewan plan - a methodical 5 phased approach to slowly lift restrictions and re-open businesses and services.   

The City supports and will fully comply with both the guidelines and restrictions under the current Public Health Order as required by the Chief Medical Health Officer and regulated under the Re-open Saskatchewan plan.   

The City will respond as quickly as we can as details are released around which facilities, programs and affected services are permitted under future Phases. 

Check back for frequent updates.
