COVID-19 Information & Response
The Government of Saskatchewan is responsible for pandemic response plans. In the education sector, school divisions are responsible for implementing plans consistent with the government’s direction. While the STF, SASBO and the Saskatchewan School Boards Association have provided recommendations and discussed response plans with the government since March 2020, government is the ultimate authority and decision maker on any plans.
As of September 16, the government has updated public health measures including mandatory masks and vaccines. The mask mandate applies to schools, with the exception of those actively participating in athletic activities. Schools are exempt from the vaccine mandate, however, the government is encouraging all employers, including school divisions, to implement a proof of vaccine or negative test.
More information on the public health measures in place can be found on the Government of Saskatchewan website.
