Failure to Abide by Public Health Orders May Result in Fines
In Saskatchewan and across the country, public health authorities are seeing increasing transmission rates as a result of public and private gatherings that are in contravention of public health orders and guidelines. Public health orders in Saskatchewan specify that individuals must self-isolate upon a confirmed COVID-19 test result and that indoor and outdoor gatherings may have a maximum of 30 people, provided there is enough space to maintain a two metre separation between individuals who are not in the same household. Gathering sizes should be smaller if there isn’t enough space to maintain a physical distance of two metres at all times.
There can be very serious consequences for not following Public Health Orders, including fines. Fines may be $2,000 for individuals and $10,000 for corporations, plus a victim surcharge.

Both the lake and the river are home to some great fishing for walleye, perch and pike.
Our town hall was recently renovated and is a wonderful location for wedding dances, community meetings or family get-togethers.
