COVID-19 Update & Information

November 25, 2020

The Town continues to monitor the Province’s Public Health Order and their phased Re-Open Saskatchewan Plan in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Government of Saskatchewan released new public health measures in effect November 19, 2020 including:

  • Mandatory masking in all indoor public places province-wide, including Town of Wadena facilities (unless specifically exempted by the public health order)
  • Private indoor gathering size reduced to five
  • Visitation to all long-term care facilities and personal care homes will be suspended, with the exception of compassionate reasons 

Further restrictions come into effect November 27 for restaurants and licensed establishments, performance and gaming venues, indoor public gatherings, sports, fitness and dance, places of worship, and retail businesses.

Residents are encouraged to refer to the Saskatchewan Government’s website,, as their source for the most up to date COVID-19 information. The Re-Open Plan is available on the website and provides information affecting the operations of several Town facilities:   

  • Town Office – open to the public Monday to Friday from 9am to 4pm 
  • Recreation Centre – open for mezzanine and ice bookings 
  • Hall – North club room & kitchen open for bookings
  • Fitness Centre – open with key card access 

The Re-Open Plan indicates that the following recommendations should remain in place through all five phases:

  • Individuals should continue working from home if they can do so effectively.
  • Physical distancing must be maintained, wherever possible.
  • People must stay at home when they are sick.
  • Vulnerable individuals, such as seniors and those with underlying health conditions, should continue to exercise caution and minimize high-risk exposures, such as public outings.
  • Personal hygiene will continue to be a key prevention measure.
  • Enhanced cleaning and disinfection should take place in workplaces, public spaces and recreational facilities.

Message from the Ministry of Health

To reduce the spread of COVID-19, the Government of Saskatchewan has declared a State of Emergency and enacted Public Health Orders. The complete public health orders are available at

All travelers returning from international destinations – including the U.S. – are subject to a mandatory self-isolation order. Anyone identified by a Medical Health Officer as a close contact of someone with COVID-19 shall go into mandatory self-isolation for 14 days from the date of having been exposed. Exempted are truckers, airline, rail, and work crews that are required to work in order to maintain business continuity and are supervised by Infection Prevention and Control Officers or Occupational Health and Safety in the workplace.

Wash your hands frequently. Maintain social distance of two metres. Do not attend any events, public or private, where you cannot maintain that social distance. Self-monitor for symptoms in yourself or your dependents and stay home if you are ill with even mild symptoms of cough or fever.
