The Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) is moving back to routine infection prevention and control protocols effective today and masking will no longer be required for patients/residents, staff or visitors. Masking will be optional in all SHA facilities including administrative offices, hospitals, clinics and long-term care facilities.
Public health orders requiring proof of vaccination or a negative test for access to businesses, workplaces and other venues ended on February 14, 2022. Many jurisdictions around the world, including Canada, have ended proof of vaccination entry requirements for international travellers.
As the need for proof of vaccination has declined considerably, eHealth Saskatchewan is decommissioning the SK Vax Wallet mobile device application. Beginning April 17, 2023, the app will no longer accept updates. Effective April 30, the app will no longer be available in app stores.
