COVID-19 Risk in Saskatoon
Following direction from the Governance and Priorities Committee (GPC) at its meeting on Monday, January 24, the decision was made to suspend the Framework for Measures to Mitigate the Risk of COVID-19 Transmission in Saskatoon. The recommendation from GPC was approved at a meeting of City Council on Monday, January 31.
Many circumstances have fundamentally changed since development and adoption of the Framework in August 2021 making it a less effective decision-making tool, most notably the emergence of the Omicron variant. In its place, the City will continue to comply with all Government of Saskatchewan Public Health Measures and regularly consult with the Saskatchewan Health Authority local Medical Health Officers on COVID-19 transmission mitigation measures.
The City will continue to share COVID-19 transmission statistics on a weekly basis posted every Thursday - visit Additional Resources to view this information.
