Sask. Government releases roadmap for reopening to facilitate COVID measures through vaccination targets – fr


However, the first step could start as early as the last week of May. Some dates by which Saskatchewan could meet these targets have been proposed by the government, depending on the current pace of immunizations. However, these dates are underlined as being estimates only. It depends on when the vaccine is taken and the doses to be administered are available.
FIRST STAGE – END OF MAY

The first stage can begin as early as the last week of May. It would begin three weeks after 70 percent of residents aged 40 and over receive their first dose, and once vaccine eligibility is open to all adults 18 and over in the province.

The province is currently at 65%. 100% of the way to this goal.

During this step, the Regina area, which has been the subject of more stringent public health orders, would see its restriction aligned with what is in place for the rest of the province.

For all of Saskatchewan, what will be newly authorized in the first step is:

  • A maximum of 10 people at indoor and outdoor gatherings, including housekeeping meetings
  • Public meetings in room for a maximum of 30 people
  • Open-air public meetings for a maximum of 150 people
  • Restaurants and Bars – Six people can be seated at a table. A distance of two meters or a structural barrier should be in place between the tables. VLTs can be made available.
  • Places of Worship – These can accommodate up to 150 people, if space is available. Otherwise, they can allow up to 30 percent capacity with distance between households.
  • Group fitness classes that involve intense training, such as aerobics – These classes should maintain at least three meters between participants.

What restrictions and protocols will not change in step one:

  • Retail, personal care services, event facilities, casinos, bingo halls, theaters, art galleries, libraries and recreational facilities must continue with current restrictions.
  • Elementary, secondary and post-secondary educational institutions and daycares must continue with the protocols in force.
  • Dance floors and buffets are not allowed.
  • Wearing the mask continues.

SECOND STAGE – END OF JUNE

The second stage could possibly begin the third week of June. It will start after 70% of residents aged 30 and over have received their first dose, at least three weeks after the start of the first stage.

So far, 53% 100 of the province’s residents aged 30 and over have received their first doses.

For all of Saskatchewan, what will be newly authorized in the second stage is:

  • A maximum of 15 people at private indoor gatherings, including housekeeping meetings
  • A maximum of 150 people at private outdoor gatherings.
  • Retail and personal care services will not have a capacity threshold, but they must maintain an occupancy rate that allows for physical distancing.
  • Restaurants and bars – no table capacity threshold, but they must maintain two meters of physical distance or structural barriers between tables.
  • Event facilities, casinos, bingo halls, theaters, art galleries, libraries and leisure facilities – can accommodate a maximum of 150 people. The physical distance must be maintained and will determine the occupancy of the building. Places that serve food should follow restaurant guidelines.
  • Youth and adult sports will see all restrictions lifted.

What restrictions and protocols will not change in step two:

  • Elementary, secondary and post-secondary educational institutions and daycares must continue with the protocols in force.
  • Gyms and fitness facilities should continue with current protocols.
  • Dance floors and buffets are not allowed.
  • Outdoor public gatherings remain at a maximum of 150 people.
  • Wearing the mask continues.

THIRD STAGE – MID-JULY

The third stage – the last stage – could possibly begin as early as the second week of July. It will start three weeks after 70% of residents aged 18 and over receive their first dose, at least three weeks after the start of the second stage.

Tuesday, 44 p. 100 of those aged 18 and over in the province had received their first doses.

In this final step, most of the remaining restrictions will be lifted. Sizing collection and indoor masking advice at that time will be based on “progressing through the first two steps”. Until these guidelines are released, public health orders on picking sizes and Stage Two interior masking will continue.
