The Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) issued the advisory on Thursday.
The employee who tested positive was working at the Canadian Brewhouse in the Stonebridge neighbourhood location last week, according to a press release.
SHA said the public health alert applies for those at the business at the following times:
- Between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. on July 1
- Between 4:30 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. on July 2
- Between 5 p.m. on July 3 and 1 a.m. on July 4
Health officials said anyone who attended this business during the listed times should be self-monitoring for symptoms. If COVID-19 symptoms develop, people are further advised to isolate and contact HealthLine 811.
SHA added this public health alert is being issued as a precaution.
“In general, businesses in the province have been compliant with public health measures, however, we know that COVID-19 is easily transmitted and want to ensure residents are aware if they have been at the restaurant during the listed times,” read an SHA statement.
“COVID-19 is still present in Saskatchewan and we all have a responsibility to minimize the spread of the disease. Together we can make a positive difference and keep our communities safe.”
Questions about COVID-19? Here are some things you need to know:
Symptoms can include fever, cough and difficulty breathing — very similar to a cold or flu. Some people can develop a more severe illness. People most at risk of this include older adults and people with severe chronic medical conditions like heart, lung or kidney disease. If you develop symptoms, contact public health authorities.
To prevent the virus from spreading, experts recommend frequent handwashing and coughing into your sleeve. They also recommend minimizing contact with others, staying home as much as possible and maintaining a distance of two metres from other people if you go out.
In situations where you can’t keep a safe distance from others, public health officials recommend the use of a non-medical face mask or covering to prevent spreading the respiratory droplets that can carry the virus.
