All Public Health Orders Could Be Lifted July 11

The Government of Saskatchewan has updated the Re-Opening Roadmap to include a vaccination threshold for the removal of all remaining public health restrictions, including mandatory masking and limits on gathering sizes.



The threshold for the removal of those public health orders will occur three weeks after 70 per cent of people age 12 and above have received their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine, with at least three weeks having passed since the beginning of Step Two. This means that all restrictions could be lifted as early as July 11, if that threshold is reached by June 20.


The original Step Three threshold of the Re-Opening Roadmap remains in effect. After 70 per cent of people 18 and older have received their first dose of vaccine and three weeks since the beginning of Step Two, most of the remaining public health restrictions will be lifted, such as those on restaurants, sports and recreation. Mandatory masking and gathering size limits would remain in effect until 70 per cent of people ages 12 and above have received their first dose.


Currently, 66 per cent of those over the age of 18 have received their first dose, while 62 per cent of people 12+ in Saskatchewan have received their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine.
