Latest Updates (Advisories, News Releases,  Chief Medical Health Officer)


The Public Health Inspection Department in the North Battleford Office would like to update you on the current increase of Covid-19 in communities.  The Saskatchewan Health Authority has identified ongoing clusters of individuals with COVID-19 in throughout Saskatchewan, including areas in the North West area.  Some of these cases are linked to known chains of transmission and some individuals have no known source for their infection.  Therefore we would like to reiterate the importance of diligent precaution measures such as:
  • Physical distancing (maintaining two meters apart) – avoid areas where there are people gathering or where there are bottle necks of foot traffic (through doorways, elevators, washroom, etc.)
  • Limit the size of indoor and outdoor gatherings or events, always adhering to the current Public Health Order restrictions and reduce unnecessary travel.   
  • Servers, hosts and other workers that are not able to maintain two meters of distance from others should wear a non-medical mask (e.g. cloth or other materials) or procedure/surgical mask. 
  • Diligent Hand Hygiene  
    • Washing your hands with soap and water (for 20 seconds) whenever your hands become soiled.
    • Use of Hand Rubs (with an alcohol content of at least 70%)
  • Enhanced Cleaning (especially high touch surfaces) in public areas and work places (especially coffee rooms).
  • Seniors or those with a weakened immune systems or underlying health conditions should wear a procedure/surgical mask if they need to go out in public. 
  • Persons who are ill asked to stay home (Self-Isolate) and contact 811 for more information. Anyone concerned that they may have come into contact with COVID is advised to call 811.
