Thanksgiving travel not recommended
As the Thanksgiving weekend approaches, the province is reminding Saskatchewan residents that restrictions on gathering sizes remain in place.
According to public health orders, indoor and outdoor gatherings may have a maximum of 30 people, as long as there is enough space for attendees to maintain a two-metre separation between people who are not in the same households or extended households.
The province is discouraging shared meals between non-household members. In addition, non-essential or recreational travel to or from Saskatchewan is not advised.
