Increased COVID-19 Exposure At Businesses In Saskatoon

Saskatchewan Health Authority is notifying the public that an individual who tested COVID-19 positive was at the following business when the individual was likely infectious:


Saigon Roll Restaurant, 311 Avenue A South

September 14, 2020 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m.


SuperStore, Confederation Drive

September 12 from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m.

Walmart, Betts Avenue

September 12 from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m.

September 19 from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m.


Public Health officials are advising individuals who were at this location on the specified date during the specified time to immediately self-isolate if they have had or currently have symptoms of COVID-19 and to call HealthLine 811 to arrange for testing. All other individuals who are not experiencing symptoms should self monitor for 14 days. It is important to note that individuals may develop symptoms from two to 14 days following exposure to the virus that causes COVID-19.


Recognize the symptoms: Stay home if you have symptoms and monitor yourself. Symptoms include: fever, cough, headache, muscle and/or joint aches and pains, sore throat, chills, runny nose, nasal congestion, conjunctivitis, dizziness, fatigue, nausea/vomiting, diarrhea, loss of appetite (difficulty feeding for children), loss of sense of taste or smell, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing.


Why issue an alert? When an individual tests positive for COVID-19, a contact investigation immediately follows where public health reaches out to anyone who may be linked to that individual with COVID-19 and provide them with information on testing and self-isolation. If health officials are uncertain that they have identified all known close contacts, they may take further action to notify the community about possible locations where individuals with COVID-19 may have attended while infectious.
