60 new COVID-19 cases; 15 recoveries

The province is reporting 6o new cases of COVID-19 in Saskatchewan to go along with 15 recoveries. It puts the active case count at 619.

The new cases are located in the Far North West (1), North West (1), North Central (5), North East (5), Saskatoon (27), Central East (2), Regina (14) and South East (5) zones.


To date, community transmission in Saskatoon is largely due to after-work socializing among young adults. 48 cases have been linked to the Longbranch Bar outbreak, 22 cases to Diva’s nightclub, 11 cases to the Canadian Brew House (Stonebridge) and eight cases to Outlaws Country Rock Bar. Transmission in Regina generally appears to be a result of close family contacts with known cases, rather than public social activities.

Twenty-five people are in hospital. Twenty-one people are receiving inpatient care; ten in the North zone, eight in the Saskatoon zone and three in the Regina zone. Four people are in intensive care; three in Saskatoon and one in Regina.
