Saskatchewan Declares State of Emergency, Imposes Additional Measures to Protect Saskatchewan Residents

Due to the rapid pace of updates with regards to COVID-19 we will continue to provide the most recent information via our Town Website (www.townofindianhead.com), Social Media Pages and resident email list.

The Town of Indian Head Office will be closed to the public beginning March 16, 2020 until further notice. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your understanding. We will continue to update you with new information as it becomes available. 

The following is an update on the Covid-19 implications from the Town of Indian Head Emergency Measures Organization.The process is taking on a huge impact to the world. This is a continued time for calm and to trust the process that is being given.

We continue to monitor the situation and will provide updates to any additional directions.

Stay informed. The media, internet and social media is full of information some false, some true and some partially true about Covid-19.

This is what we suggest:

1. RELY ON credible information. You can follow this link for the Public Health Agency of Canada and other resources.

2. Because the virus spreads through coughing, sneezing & direct physical contact it is essential to:

A. Avoid large groups

B. Distance yourself from others if you can

C. Wash your hands frequently. At least 20 seconds with soap AND WATER

D. If you are sick head for home

E. DO NOT visit senior residents if you're sick

F. Utilize the COVID-19 Self Assessment Tool on the Government of Saskatchewan website if you're unsure of your status and to know when to talk to a doctor

G. Use the 811 Provincial Health Line to ask questions on your health

H. MAKE SURE you have a supply of your normal required medication on hand

At this time, the Public Health Agency of Canada has assessed the public health risk associated with COVID-19 as low for the general population, but this could change quickly.

Public health officials continue to reassess the national and provincial public health risk, based on the best available evidence as the situation evolves. Please see the link below for the most recent release from the Government of Saskatchewan. For more information visit their website https://bit.ly/38KuIo7 

COVID-19 Guidance: Mass Gatherings, Risk for Elderly Populations

 

The Government of Canada Public Health Agency is monitoring the spread of Covid-19 in other countries as well as here in Canada. Indian Head Council and Emergency Management Committee will try to ensure the latest information, facts, & advice is provided here and on the Town website, as it is received.

The Information is not provided to bring panic or as a scare tactic but to highlight the importance of having a plan for this particular potential emergency. A major Health Emergency is also a risk to our community, no different than planning for a long term major power outage regarding the basic needs of survival.

The latest direction is suggesting now is a good time to consider having food, medicines..water etc and needs if one was to be ill for a 2 week period. In some cases consideration on a plan for business continuity. Residents that are travelling or returning from a trip should be self monitoring and report any illness symptoms to Sask Health Authority by calling 811.

Again, a plan will help in the long run. Hopefully we won't need it but it is a helpful exercise. Any medical questions should be directed to the Sask Health Authority. For more information, you can visit the Government of Canada website:
