There are 324 new cases of COVID-19 to report in Saskatchewan on December 10, 2020, bringing the provincial total to date to 11,223 cases.


The new cases are located in the Far North West (15), Far North Central (3), Far North East (15), North West (47), North Central (37), North East (9), Saskatoon (109), Central West (1), Central East (6), Regina (53), South West (15), South Central (2) and South East (8) zones and four (4) new cases have pending residence information.


Two cases with pending residence information were assigned to the Far North East and North West zones.


The seven-day average of daily new cases is 283 (23.3 new cases per 100,000 population).


Of the 11,223 reported cases, 4,682 are considered active. A total of 6,466 people have recovered.


It is anticipated that the number of cases designated as “active” will decline as older cases are reviewed and potentially shifted to recovered status. This work is ongoing.
