The Saskatchewan Health Authority Prince Albert office issues advisories about public health concerns, facility disruptions or visitor restrictions due to illness outbreaks.
The public is reminded that proper hand hygiene reduces the risk of getting or spreading illnesses. Visitors to any health care facility are asked to perform hand hygiene upon entering and leaving the facility. Anyone who is ill is also asked to not visit any health care facility, whether it is on outbreak status or not.
