The Saskatchewan government is bolstering its public health measures as the province faces some of the highest COVID-19 numbers in Canada.

To alleviate pressure on the health-care system, the government says it is reinstating mandatory isolation requirements for people who test positive for COVID-19 and expanding testing and contact tracing.

Unvaccinated residents will also need to self-isolate if they come in contact with a positive case, but fully vaccinated people will not face the same requirement.

To expand surge capacity in Saskatchewan hospitals, the government says there will be a reduction in non-critical and elective surgeries and procedures.

The province says it won't bring in a government-mandated vaccine passport, but notes it is working on a policy for all Saskatchewan Health Authority employees to show proof of immunization or a negative COVID-19 test.
