Saskatchewan says COVID-19 reopening scheme relies on vaccine uptake

The Government of Saskatchewan states that its COVID-19 reopening plan will be in three phases on a vaccination basis.

The government says Phase 1 will take place three weeks after 70 percent of residents over 40 years of age and have received their first dose of vaccine.

At that stage, the government says it will re-enforce some regulations that were in place last summer, including indoor gatherings of 10 people.

It states that stage 2 will be three weeks after 70 percent of those 30 and people over 30 have received the first dose and 70 percent of all adults will have stage 3 three weeks after the shot.

By Phase 3, the government says it expects to lift most of the remaining COVID-19 public health restrictions.

Officials say the plan relies on the province receiving a supply of vaccines expecting it on time.
