The province is almost at step one of its reopening plan.

Toronto Associate Editor

On Sunday, May 9, Premier Scott Moe announced that the requirements for step one of Saskatchewan's reopening plan have been reached.

According to the Saskatchewan government, 70% of all Baby Boomers, Gen Xers, and members of older generations have now received the first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and everyone 18 and older is now eligible to book a vaccination appointment.

There are three different steps to Saskatchewan's Re-Opening Road Map, all of which are meant to gradually bring the province back to a full re-opening and ease public health restrictions.

Step one will see the reopening of indoor dining at restaurants and bars, the allowance of indoor group fitness classes (with distanced measures in place), and an increase in indoor and outdoor gatherings. Private indoor and outdoor gatherings will now allow up to ten people, while public indoor gatherings will have a maximum of 30 attendees.

The tentative target date to implement step one is currently Sunday, May 30, three weeks after the provincial requirements of the first vaccination threshold were met.
