The Province of Saskatchewan has announced enhanced preventive measures for COVID-19. The measures can be found at https://www.saskatchewan.ca/government/news-and-media/2020/march/13/further-measures-for-covid-19.
The City of Weyburn will be adhering to these measures as our top priority is the health, safety and well-being of the community and our employees. We are focused on maintaining City services. City recreation and leisure programs will continue as scheduled at this time.
We recommend these precautions to protect against all illnesses:
▪ Wash your hands with soap frequently
▪ Cover your cough or sneeze using the inside of your elbow
▪ Avoid touching your face
▪ Stay home if you feel sick
If anyone has symptoms such as fever, cough and difficulty breathing and have traveled outside Canada or have been exposed to someone who has COVID-19, they should stay home and call HealthLine 811 https://www.saskatchewan.ca/residents/health/accessing-health-care-services/healthline. If you are not seriously ill, do not go to a physician’s office, a health care facility or a lab, without consulting with HealthLine 811 first.
