Saskatchewan Health reports one new case of COVID-19 from the Far North Region. This brings the provincial total to 647, 34 are considered active, 602 people have recovered and two people are in hospital both in intensive care.
Beginning immediately the Saskatchewan Health Authority is expanding criteria for compassionate reasons related to visitation restrictions for long term care homes and patients in intensive care in hospital. If long term care resident’s needs can’t be met without the help of family two designated relatives or support people can visit but only one at a time and for intensive or critical care patients in hospital and those in palliative care visits will be allowed by two family members.
