The local situation with respect to COVID-19 continues to change quickly, and the City of Saskatoon is working with the province and partner agencies to safeguard the community and communicate with residents as best we can. For the latest updates from the province, including information about self-isolation, monitoring, testing, and other health questions, please visit this site.
As you may have heard, the City has announced that all leisure centres, rinks, golf courses (for pre-season sales), and outdoor rink warm-up shacks will be closed as of March 16th, and the Saskatoon Public Library has announced that all library branches will also be closed as of March 16th. If you’d like more information about leisure programming, including information for people affected by a closure or booking cancellation at a city facility, check here.

Postponed & Modified Events
Councillor Gersher and I have decided to postpone the upcoming Youth Climate Action Forum, scheduled for April 1st. My Ward 7 Town Hall Meeting with Mayor Clark, scheduled for April 8th, will also be postponed, but we will be holding an online/digital Town Hall ‘meeting’ at the same date and time. Please watch for updates about where you can watch and how you can participate. Thank you for your understanding!
Look out for one another
Finally, Mayor Clark wrote about what we can do as a community to remain resilient, safe, and healthy during these uncertain times. How we look out for one another can be as simple as hand-washing and staying home if we’re ill, or by supporting local businesses, shelters, and community-based organizations – many of which have had to cancel fundraisers in recent days. I know there are also private residents who are working on ways to help the community during this challenging time. Thank you for reading, and I hope you will feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns.
