The Saskatchewan Health Authority is undertaking contact tracing and will inform individuals identified as close contacts.
City officials said cleaning and disinfecting have taken place at the three locations since the positive case was identified.
No other details have been released by the city due to privacy concerns, but officials said the positive case is unlikely to be linked to workplace transmission.
While officials said they understand the case may cause concern for customers at the facilities, they reiterated that many health and safety protocols and precautions are in place.
Among those are mandatory masks for staff and the public, safety signage and markers, and acrylic barriers for some staff.
They added that this situation emphasizes the importance of the layer the city has put in place to prevent the transmission of the coronavirus at civic facilities.View link »
