Health authorities in Saskatchewan have identified three new cases of COVID-19, increasing its total count to 630.
Two of those cases are in the Saskatoon area and the other is in the Far North, which has 76 of the province’s 88 active cases.
Fourteen more people have recovered from the respiratory virus, meaning that there are 535 resolved patients throughout Saskatchewan.
Six people are currently in hospital (up by one), and three in intensive care. Forty-nine health care workers have been infected, but the source of infection for each case may not be related to their line of work, according to a press release.
To date, 43,419 COVID-19 tests have been performed in the province.
