Sask. restaurants and bars can expand their services, indoor ice rinks and pools can reopen from Monday


New business restrictions have started to loosen as the provincial government continues to reopen the Saskatchewan economy.Starting on Monday, seating in bars and restaurants across the province will be expanded to “a level that allows staff and customers to maintain a physical distance of two meters,” said a provincial press release.

Previously, restaurants and bars were only allowed to operate at 50% of their capacity.

Live entertainment in bars is scheduled to return on July 16, as well as race tracks and rodeos.
