SHA advises of increased COVID-19 exposure at Lloydminster Caberet event

The Saskatchewan Health Authority is advising people that someone with COVID-19 was at the Lloydminster Exhibition Caberet on August 21st and 22nd while infectious.

The person was at the event on the grounds, in the Saskatchewan Building, between 11:30 PM on the 21st and 1:30 AM on the 22nd.

In response, the SHA says if someone has not been double vaccinated before August 9th, they should self-isolate immediately, remaining there until September 6th.

The SHA also advises that people seek testing immediately, and a second test on September 2nd as well.

If someone has been double vaccinated, and their last dose was given before August 9th, they don’t need to isolate, but should still self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 until Sept 6th.

If symptoms develop, start self-isolating immediately and seek testing, the SHA adds.

People can arrange testing by calling HealthLine 811, their physician or nurse practitioner, and the development period for symptoms is two to 14 days following exposure to the virus that causes COVID-19.

People can find more details about symptoms, vaccination and self-isolation guidance on the SHA’s website. 

UPDATE: This story has been updated to reflect both the 21st and 22nd date. This is a correction from the SHA.
