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.

This includes:

  • 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.
