Regina residents are being strongly encouraged to continue wearing a mask when visiting City of Regina facilities or using Regina Transit in order to limit COVID-19 transmission, according to city officials.

The city shared this statement as the remaining public health orders in Saskatchewan expired on Monday. The orders required the public to wear masks in public indoor spaces.

“The health, safety and well-being of employees and residents remain a top priority for the City of Regina. We will continue to make masks available for visitors to City facilities and to riders on Regina Transit,” said the city in a release on Monday.

It is no longer a requirement for residents to self-isolate if they test positive for COVID-19 following the expiration of the province’s health orders, but the province is still recommending that people self-isolate if they test positive.

The policy to provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test result when entering a City of Regina facility came to an end on Feb. 14 when the province removed the requirement.
