Saskatchewan reported 116 new cases of COVID-19 on Saturday, and two deaths.
The people who died included a person in their 60s from the far north west, and an individual in their 50s from the north east, says the government of Saskatchewan.
This brings Saskatchewan’s COVID-19 death toll to 27.
Premier Scott Moe tweeted on Saturday that the new deaths are “a sad reminder that COVID-19 is a deadly disease that continues to spread throughout” Saskatchewan.
“By now, we all know what we need to do to protect ourselves and others from the spread of COVID-19,” Moe tweeted. “So in the weeks ahead, as we spend more time indoors, let’s all be even more careful and vigilant so we can reduce these rising case numbers and keep each other safe.”
