Expanded Public Health Order For Mandatory Self-Isolation, Gatherings

The Chief Medical Health Officer is updating the public health order under The Public Health Act to further reduce the risk of potential COVID-19 transmission in the province.  At the same time, Premier Scott Moe today signed an order pursuant to the provincial State of Emergency directing that all orders of the government and Chief Medical Health Officer must be followed and that law enforcement agencies in Saskatchewan have the full authority to enforce those orders.

Moe said he was particularly concerned that some individuals returning from international travel were not following the 14 day self-isolation policy.

“I know that the vast majority of Saskatchewan people are taking their personal responsibility seriously and following this order,” Moe said.  “But a few are not.  This is not a suggestion.  It is not a guideline.  It is the law and it must be followed.”
