SASKATOON NIGHT CLUB EPIDEMICS
The province said the increase in the number of cases in Saskatoon was still largely linked to outbreaks in city nightclubs.
“To date, community transmission in Saskatoon is largely due to post-work socialization among young adults,” the province said in the release.
A total of 47 cases have been linked to the Longbranch Bar outbreak, 22 cases are linked to the Diva nightclub and seven cases are linked to the Outlaws Country Rock Bar.
