Four of the recently deceased were reported in the 80-plus age group from the north central (2), Saskatoon (1) and the south east (1) zones, according to a press release from the Saskatchewan government. The other was in their 60s and from far north west.
According to Tuesday’s update, there were 80 new cases with the overall infection total in Saskatchewan now at 25,654. This is the lowest amount of new infections reported since Nov. 4, which had 36.

Questions about COVID-19? Here are some things you need to know:
Symptoms can include fever, cough and difficulty breathing — very similar to a cold or flu. Some people can develop a more severe illness. People most at risk of this include older adults and people with severe chronic medical conditions like heart, lung or kidney disease. If you develop symptoms, contact public health authorities.

To prevent the virus from spreading, experts recommend frequent handwashing and coughing into your sleeve. They also recommend minimizing contact with others, staying home as much as possible and maintaining a distance of two metres from other people if you go out. In situations where you can’t keep a safe distance from others, public health officials recommend the use of a non-medical face mask or covering to prevent spreading the respiratory droplets that can carry the virus. In some provinces and municipalities across the country, masks or face coverings are now mandatory in indoor public spaces.
