Limit Transmission of Variants of Concern in your Community - Get Vaccinated
The number of confirmed cases of the Delta variant has increased significantly in recent weeks. The Delta variant is assumed to be 1.5 times more transmissible and twice as virulent as the Alpha variant.
Two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine are required for optimal protection against the Delta variant. Residents are strongly encouraged to get their first and second doses as soon as possible.
Getting tested also assists the monitoring of active cases and variants of concern in the province. Even if experiencing mild symptoms, stay home and seek a COVID-19 test. COVID-19 testing is available to all residents. You can receive a referral for COVID-19 testing through HealthLine 811 or a health care provider, and drive-thru testing sites are available without a referral seven days a week in Regina, Saskatoon, Yorkton and Prince Albert. Information on symptoms to watch for and how to get tested is available at www.saskatchewan.ca/covid19-testing.
