As of Thursday the total is now at 206, with 38 being in the area housing Lloydminster and surrounding towns. 13 people in the area have recovered from the disease.
Of the 206, 96 cases are travel related, 44 are community contractions or contracted during mass gatherings, ten have no known exposures and 56 are under investigation by local public health.
In an effort to alleviate further financial pressures on doctors, medical staff and patients, the Saskatchewan Health Authority is suspending parking fees at all their facilities temporarily. These fees are also suspended for people visiting for compassionate care.
Residents are also encouraged to keep making use of Health-Link 8-1-1, the Saskatchewan Public Safety Agency Toll Free Line and their COVID-19 website to obtain more information on COVID-19 and how to fight it.
