SHA alert: Possibility of COVID-19 transmission at Turtleford Co-op

The Saskatchewan Health Authority is alerting individuals of a possibility of COVID-19 transmission through a local business in Turtleford and is urging Saskatchewan residents to follow public health measures and personal safety precautions to prevent the spread of the virus, including physical distancing of two metres, frequent hand hygiene and self-isolating if you develop any symptoms of COVID-19.

Although the risk of transmission to the general public is presently considered low, we are advising members of the public who visited the Turtleford Co-op Grocery Store on or after July 28 to self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 for 14 days from the last date they visited the store.
