The number of recoveries from COVID-19 over the last twenty-four hours is even to the number of new cases in the same time.
In an effort to provide more accurate information, the province has begun subtracting recovery numbers in the total active cases. While there have been 260 cases of COVID-19 in the province, 168 are considered “active.” In total, 88 people have recovered from the disease.
Seven people have also been hospitalized, six in Regina and one in Saskatoon. One person in both cities are in intensive care.
The North Zone, which houses Lloydminster and the surrounding area, has 22 active cases and 25 recoveries.
The province is also reminding residents to plan upcoming religious holidays around rules for hygiene and physical distancing. This means keeping gatherings just to the family that lives in your home, pre-planning grocery trips to cut down on browsing and having only one person travel to grocery stores.
In total, 14,722 COVID-19 tests have been performed across Saskatchewan, with 13,949 negative results.
