Parental consent forms were previously considered adequate for elementary students beyond grade four.
Meanwhile Canada is reviewing its vaccine booster strategy, and now require testing for all air travellers coming from outside Canada, except fo the U.S.
Those who are vaccinated will have to isolate until they get a negative result, and those who are unvaccinated will continue to have to isolate for the full 14 days and test on day one and day eight of their quarantine.
Saskatchewan Health Authority’s Patient Booking System can now be used to book a COVID-19 test online. Online booking is available for testing sites across the province.
Anyone who is experiencing symptoms of COVID or who has been informed that they may have been exposed to COVID should be tested as soon as possible. Booking online makes it possible to see all the dates and times that may work if drive-thru or walk-in testing is not an option.
If you require proof of a negative test before you travel or before attending an event, access user-pay COVID-19 asymptomatic testing through a private lab.
