Statement from Ryan Meili on first deaths in Saskatchewan from COVID-19

NDP Leader Ryan Meili issued the following statement in response to the first deaths in the province from COVID-19:

“I first want to say to the friends and family of those who have died that our thoughts are with you in this moment of loss. To the rest of the province, I know that we are all anxious about the impact of COVID-19 on our lives and our families. We will get through this challenging time together, even as we stay apart to slow the spread.

“Today’s news reminds us how important it is for us to maintain physical distancing measures, for people to stay home as much as possible and to avoid gatherings. We also need to ramp up testing and trace contacts of people who have COVID-19 in order to identify and isolate cases and reduce the spread of the virus.

“I want to thank all of the frontline staff who are working so hard to keep us and our loved ones healthy, and everyone for following the measures required of us at this time.”
