Premier Scott Moe announced proof of vaccination or negative test requirements will be implemented for a number of establishments, businesses, and event venues across the province starting October 1.
- indoor dining at restaurants
- nightclubs, bars, taverns, and other licensed establishments
- events and entertainment venues, including conference centres, casinos, movie theatres, concert venues, live-music venues, museums, and indoor facilities hosting ticketed sporting events
- indoor fitness centres and gyms
You won't need proof of vaccination for these places/occasions:
- retail businesses including grocery stores
- places of worship
- fast food restaurants offering takeout and delivery
- healthcare services, professional services, or personal services
- hotels or other lodging
- facilities hosting non-ticketed amateur sporting events, including youth athletics and recreational leagues
- business meetings and places of business closed to the general public, unless otherwise directed by the business or employer
- private gatherings held at an indoor public residence
Children younger than 12 won't need to show proof of vaccination or a negative test, as there isn't a vaccine approved for them.
Proof of vaccination or a negative test will also be implemented on October 1 for all Government of Saskatchewan ministry, crown, and agency employees. Any employee not fully vaccinated for COVID-19 by then will have to show proof of a negative test result on a "consistent basis."
The government is encouraging other employers, including school divisions, to implement a similar policy.
