Saskatchewan Ending Proof of Vaccination
Feb 08, 2022
The provincial requirement to provide proof of vaccination or negative tests in Saskatchewan businesses, workplaces and other public venues will end this Monday, February 14 at 12:01am.
eHealth Saskatchewan will continue to make proof of vaccination records and QR codes available to Saskatchewan residents for use where needed including for travel or in other jurisdictions.
The remaining public health orders requiring masking in indoor public spaces will remain in effect until the end of February.
Premier Scott Moe said it's time to take the next step in living with Covid-19 and getting our lives back to normal.
"Proof of vaccination has been an effective policy, but its effectiveness has run its course," Moe said. "The benefits no longer outweigh the costs. It's time to heal the divisions over-vaccination in our families, in our communities, and in our province. It's time for proof of vaccination requirements to end."
Moe said vaccines and rapid test kits will continue to be widely accessible throughout the province.
"As we shift to living with COVID-19, there is a continuing need for personal responsibility for self-monitoring, self-testing and self-management," Moe said. "It will be important for individuals to assess their own risk and comfort levels, and to take appropriate action if they are unwell."
"The trucking industry in Saskatchewan has done a commendable job to limit the spread of COVID-19 while ensuring supply chain stability. The STA is confident the trucking industry in Saskatchewan will continue to be leaders in protecting the health and safety of our communities." STA Executive Director, Susan Ewart.
Residents are encouraged to continue to help reduce the transmission of COVID-19, including wearing your best mask, taking advantage of free rapid testing, regular handwashing, staying home when ill, and getting vaccinated, including your third/booster dose as soon as you are eligible.
