The steady decline of confirmed active COVID-19 cases in Saskatchewan has continued today.
In their May 25th update, the Saskatchewan Health Authority has confirmed two new cases and eight recoveries in the last day. One of these cases is in the Far North, and another in the North. This brings active totals to 81 cases of 642 reported. Recoveries are at 546, or just over 86 per cent of all reported cases. In the North Zone, the numbers sit at six active cases and 103 recoveries.
There are also six people in hospital. Two, one in Regina and one in the North, are receiving inpatient care. Four are in intensive care, all in Saskatoon.
With businesses re-opening and workers leaving their homes, the Saskatchewan Health Authority has also expanded eligibility for testing. Testing is now available for anyone working outside the home, or returning to work. People can put that in motion or find more information by calling HealthLink 8-1-1.
To date, 44,312 COVID-19 tests have been performed in the province.
