NDP calls for “Circuit Breaker” of non-essential services to protect businesses and healthcare system

REGINA — New Democratic Party Leader Ryan Meili announced today that as a result of Premier Scott Moe’s ineffective actions to address the second wave of COVID-19 in Saskatchewan, the NDP is calling for a three-week “circuit breaker” to keep our health care system from being overwhelmed and ensure that businesses and communities don’t face further hardship with longer shut downs.

Statement by New Democratic Party Health Critic Vicki Mowat in response to Covid-19 measures

“The Premier and his government have once again been back-tracked on their response to the surge in Covid-19 cases in Saskatchewan. Only a few days ago Premier Moe stated no new measures were being contemplated. Last Friday the Health Minister announced masks would be mandatory in certain communities but not others. Today the mask order is now mandatory for all of Saskatchewan. The inconsistency and lack of clarity is constant and disruptive.
