Worship Gatherings (05/27/21 Update)

Effective May 30, 2021, the total number of people participating in all worship services in Saskatchewan cannot exceed 30 per cent of seating capacity or 150 people, whichever is less. These guidelines apply to all worship services, including celebrations of life, weddings and outdoor ceremonies. Seating (or designated worship space) must be arranged so that physical distancing can be observed at all times.

Everyone in attendance at a place of worship must wear a mask except clergy members or religious leaders who are leading a service or ceremony while speaking from a podium, lectern, platform, stage, desk or other standing or seating area dedicated to speaking.

For the purposes of contact tracing, places of worship are required to collect and maintain a list of people that are present within their facilities for any purposes. Lists must be maintained confidentially by the place of worship and destroyed after 30 days.
