Lloyd Hospital unlikely to re-open on same timeline as other SHA facilities

The Saskatchewan Health Authority says the Lloydminster Hospital will likely begin to re-offer services at a later time than the rest of the province.

Health Officials have previously announced that medical facilities across the province would begin re-offering services on May 19th, but it was not clear at that time if Lloydminster Hospital would be among them, due to the recent COVID-19 cluster found there.

On May 7th, another health care worker was confirmed as having COVID-19, and another case was found connected to close contact transmission from that person. All health care workers who have been identified as close contacts with a confirmed case are being tested as the contact investigation continues.

Guidelines set in place April 30th, including the moving patients into separate units in the hospital, redirecting non-COVID patients to other facilities and visitor restrictions all remain in effect.

Emergency department, emergency surgical and obstetrical services are all still available at Lloydminster Hospital.
