There have been 753 reported COVID-19 cases in the province with 98 still considered to be active.

Four individuals remain in hospital with one in intensive care while the death toll remains at 13.

Nine cases that were originally attributed to Saskatchewan's numbers are no longer being considered in the overall count because the people reside outside of the province.

The latest numbers come as the Saskatchewan government announced that beginning Monday, libraries, museums, galleries, and theatres will be allowed to reopen.
