July 13: Saskatchewan Reports 56 New Cases of COVID-19 After Outbreak in Southwest

Saskatchewan is reporting another 56 active cases of COVID-19 in the province since Friday.

Health Minister Jim Reiter says the new cases are concentrated in the province’s southwest but are spreading north.

He says local public health authorities are working with area Hutterite colonies to control and contain the spread.

Opposition leader Ryan Meili says Reiter waited too long to announce the new infections.

He points out that over the weekend the province developed 25 new cases — an increase of more than 50 per cent in active cases over two days.

Saskatchewan now has 90 active cases and 871 cases overall.
