Saskatchewan will be rolling out more parts of their re-opening plan over the next week. Phase four, entering its second part, will see several indoor and outdoor recreation activities resume.
Outdoor sports, including full games, can start up now, provided physical distancing can be ensured. For sports that cannot, such as full-contact sports, health officials recommend breaking up into smaller “mini-leagues” to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Locker rooms, shower facilities and change rooms at gyms, outdoor facilities and beaches are open again.
Change rooms in clothing and retail stores can now move to 100 per cent occupancy as well.
Starting June 26th, campgrounds will be allowed to have 100 per cent visitor capacity for overnight or short term stays. Camp washrooms and showers will have extra cleaning measures in place.
The next step will be libraries, museums, galleries, movie theatres and live theatres, which will re-open on June 29th.
The re-opening dates for the other activities under Phase 4, including indoor pools, indoor rinks, indoor sports and activities, casinos and bingo halls will be announced over the next two weeks.
The province is reminding staff in restaurants and licensed establishments, gyms and fitness facilities, and personal care services to wear a mask if they cannot maintain two metres of distance from customers. Seniors and those with a weakened immune system are also recommended to use masks.
