Today Saskatchewan residents will see some tighter restrictions in an effort to curb the spread of COVID-19.

Capacity limits are set to 30 people in all casinos, bingo halls, arenas, movie theatres, and places of worship. Large retail stores have to cut their capacity by 50 percent.

 Restaurants and bars can still welcome patrons, but must limit seating to four per table, and tables must be at least 3 metres apart unless separated by a barrier.

The province has also suspended all sports including games and practices in all amateur and recreational leagues.

Gathering sizes for homes in the province remain at 5 people, and visitors are not allowed if your immediate family is five or greater.

These new measures will remain in effect until at least December 17th.
