Saskatchewan residents are being asked to use rapid antigen testing kits to monitor for COVID-19. Residents who receive a positive rapid antigen test or confirmatory PCR test will be required to self-isolate for five days, down from ten.
If you have COVID-19 symptoms, you should immediately isolate yourself and seek a PCR test at a Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) testing site. As part of COVID-19 case management protocols, all residents are required to self-isolate and notify their close contacts if they receive a positive test result from a rapid antigen test or a PCR test.
If fully vaccinated, self-isolate for five days after the test or 48 hours after your symptoms have subsided. For those not or partially vaccinated, self-isolate for 10 days from the test date or 48 hours after your symptoms have subsided.
Close contacts must isolate for 14 days after last exposure unless fully immunised and symptom-free. If asymptomatic, do fast antigen testing between days 5 and 7 of the 14 day isolation. If symptoms appear, have a PCR test.
