As it stands right now, there are 464 active cases of COVID-19 in Saskatchewan. On June 1, that number stood at 1,272.
The case numbers not only in Saskatchewan, but across the Canada have started to diminish because of the vaccine rollout here and across the country.
Despite the numbers showing us the vaccines are working, some still choose not to get their first dose. Premier Scott Moe says the vaccines are doing what they should, so you should take that first shot as soon as possible.
“Vaccines are working and are significantly lowering the risk for Saskatchewan residents and all Canadians except for those who have chosen not to be vaccinated.” Moe said. “For you, you are still at risk and there is no reason for you to be at that risk.
In its latest update, the government says 80 per cent of those over 40, 75 per cent of those over 30, 71 per cent of those over 18 and 70 per cent of those over 12 have gotten their first vaccination shot.
Moe also said that despite what some polls are suggesting, his government will not be instituting a “vaccine passport” for people to show proof of being vaccinated so they can attend large events.
