The Saskatchewan Health Authority announced Wednesday evening it will be continuing to limit acute and long term care visitation rights to “Level 3 Family Presence” in the Regina zone, due to a continued risk of COVID-19 in the area.
“Level 3 Family Presence” means that two family/support members can be present at same time for end of life care only, in acute care facilities and long term care homes.
One essential family/support person can be designated to assist with care if needed.
In a release the SHA says this is in effect for the city of Regina, Lumsden, Emerald Park and Cupar.
While some areas of the province will begin allowing more visitation to homes based on vaccination levels, Regina’s Medical Health Officers have discretion to maintain current restrictions, even if the thresholds are met.
There are currently 810 active cases of COVID-19 in the Regina zone, 81 new cases were announced for the region on Wednesday.
