Eleven new cases of COVID-19 in Sask; record high testing

The Saskatchewan government is reporting a record number of one-day tests for COVID-19 since tests started to be performed.
2,873 tests were done on Friday surpassing the old record of 2,129 set on August 6.
11 new cases of the virus have been diagnosed with five of those cases coming from Regina. Two are in the Saskatoon and South central regions with the west-central and east-central zone each reporting one case.
Both of the new cases reported today in Saskatoon are linked to the outbreak at Brandt Industries. Initial public health investigations suggest this outbreak is linked to out-of-province travel.
There have been three recoveries meaning the active case count is at 121.
A total of 10 people are in hospital. Nine people are receiving inpatient care; seven of those are in Saskatoon, one is in Regina and one is in the South Central zone. One person is in intensive care in Saskatoon.
Investigations completed thus far have found that 25 of the 121 current active cases are from communal living settings.
