Saskatchewan today reached the Step Three threshold on the province Re-Opening Roadmap, with 70 per cent of Saskatchewan residents age 18 and older having received their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine.
That means Step Three will begin on Sunday, July 11 – three weeks after Step Two, which begins on Sunday, June 20.
In Step Three, the majority of public health measures will be lifted. The only remaining measures will be restrictions on mass public gatherings, and the mandatory masking order. Both remaining restrictions could be removed soon as Saskatchewan approaches 70 per cent of residents ages 12 and older having received their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine.
“Saskatchewan people are doing a great job protecting themselves and those around them while making sure we can reopening safely by getting vaccinated,” Premier Scott Moe said. “As we continue in our Re-Opening Roadmap, I’m urging people to continue to get vaccinated, and to get that second shot just as soon as it’s your turn. Let’s all stick it to COVID, let’s get things back to the way they should be in our province, and let’s all have a great Saskatchewan summer.”
