REGINA — Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe says he won’t shut down all restaurants and bars because a few are flouting COVID-19 rules.
Instead, he says he’s asking public-health officials to look at more enforcement measures, such as forcing rule breakers to close.
Moe says “enough is enough” and is expressing frustration at a recent video that shows young people dancing without masks and mingling at a bar in Regina.
Health officials are reporting another 309 COVID-19 infections and say six more residents have died.
Saskatchewan’s chief medical health officer says the province remains stuck at a daily average of around 300 new cases and hospitalizations are on the rise.
Moe says he doesn’t believe the province needs to introduce stricter public-health measures to stem the virus’s spread, but people need to follow the rules already in place.
There are 207 people in hospital, with 31 of them in intensive care.
