Sask. health authority issues alert for COVID-19 exposure at Prince Albert restaurant


The Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) says there’s an increased risk of COVID-19 exposure at the Rock and Iron Sports Bar in Prince Albert.

At least one person who has tested positive for COVID-19 was at the restaurant at the following times:

  • Aug. 27 – 4 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Anyone at the Rock and Iron during these times is asked to immediately self-isolate and get tested.

If you’ve received two doses of the vaccine, with the second shot at least 14 days prior to exposure, you do not need to self-isolate, but should still watch for symptoms.
