Questions about City employees entering private properties (homes & businesses) during the COVID-19 pandemic
Is the City still responding to service requests during the COVID-19 pandemic?
During the pandemic, the City will only accommodate urgent private property service requests that involve disruption to core services such as water, sewer, and power.
What can I expect when calling the City with a private property service request during the COVID-19 pandemic?
When reporting your concern or request for service, City staff will have several questions to discern the urgency of the work and the potential for health risk. If you or anyone else at your property has tested positive for COVID-19, is currently unwell, is in isolation or has had exposure to the virus, you must disclose this information to City staff.
While practising physical distancing due to COVID-19, is it safe to grant access to a City of Saskatoon service person?
The City will only proceed with those private property service calls that are urgent and involve disruption to core services. City employees will adhere to strict safety protocols during the service call, including: disinfecting themselves and their equipment prior to entering your property, practising physical distancing (keeping two metres between people), and – where appropriate – the use of personal protective equipment. Any City employee that is feeling unwell or has had exposure to COVID-19 has been ordered to stay home. They will not be conducting service calls or any other work in the community.
What are my responsibilities around a private property service call during the COVID-19 pandemic?
Property owners need to ensure the work environment is clean and free of clutter, and that as few people are present during the service call as possible. Any people that are present must practice physical distancing by ensuring they remain at least two metres from the worker and the work area. City employees are able to refuse entry to a property if they observe signs of cold or flu.
Are there mandatory vaccination or negative COVID-19 rest requirements in place for City employees entering homes/businesses?
A City employee entering a home or business on behalf of the City will be required to comply with a mandatory vaccination or regular negative COVID-19 test requirement. Additionally, all employees follow COVID-19 safety protocols including a daily health check, protective measures and enhanced cleaning and sanitizing protocols.
NOTE: The current Public Health Order requires “patrons and volunteers” visiting businesses described in the Public Health Order to provide proof of vaccination or negative test to enter. City employees who are entering businesses for inspections, maintenance, etc. are therefore not required to show their proof of vaccination or negative test to enter a business to provide such services.
How will COVID-19 impact the City's budget and finances? Will my taxes change?
