Saskatchewan Stage 1. Plan to reopen begins with new rules for gatherings, restaurants – fr


REGINA – Saskatchewan officially began the first step of its roadmap to reopen on Sunday, which ushered in an updated set of COVID-19 restrictions.

The province passed the vaccination milestone required to activate the first stage three weeks ago, with 71% of residents over the age of 40 receiving their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

Saskatchewan restaurants and bars will be able to operate with a maximum of six people per table and VLTs will be able to reopen.

The limit for indoor and outdoor private gatherings will be set at a maximum of 10 people, 30 people for indoor public gatherings and 150 people for outdoor public gatherings.

Places of worship can accommodate 30% of their capacity or 150 people, whichever is less. Outdoor graduation ceremonies can accommodate up to 150 people.

Current restrictions will remain in place for conference and banquet facilities, casinos, bingo halls, cinemas, art galleries and libraries.

Restrictions around outdoor sports were made to hasten its return due to a reduced risk of transmission outdoors. The restrictions on indoor sports are expected to change at the second stage, that is, when outdoor sports were originally going to return.

The current province-wide mandate for the mask will remain in place.

The second stage is scheduled to start on June 20.
