The Province announced on September 16th that effective October 1st, a provincial requirement for proof of vaccination or negative test will be implemented for public access to establishments, businesses and event venues including:

• Indoor dining at restaurants;
• Nightclubs, bars, taverns and other licensed establishments;
• Event and entertainment venues, including conference centres, casinos, movie theatres, concert venues, live-music venues, museums, and indoor facilities hosting ticketed sporting events;
• Indoor fitness centres, and gyms.

Acceptable forms of proof of vaccination include:

• A QR code/MySaskHealthRecord vaccine certificate uploaded to SK Vax Wallet
• A printed copy of your MySaskHealthRecord vaccine certificate (with or without a QR code)
• A screenshot of your MySaskHealthRecord vaccine certificate (with or without a QR code) saved to your device
• An earlier version of your MySaskHealthRecord COVID-19 vaccine certificate
• Your wallet card issued at time of vaccinations
• A COVID-19 vaccine printout from Saskatchewan Health Authority Public Health

Businesses or organizations requiring proof of vaccination can download and use a free QR code verifier app to scan the QR code and determine if a person is fully vaccinated or not. The Saskatchewan Vaccine Verifier app (SK Vax Verifier) is available free from Google Play or Apple App stores.

When an individual's QR code is scanned with the SK Vax Verifier app, the app will show either a green indicator to verify the person is fully vaccinated or a red indicator to show they are not. Information is secure and is not saved/retained in the scanning process. The green/red indicator is based on "fully vaccinated" criteria determined by government

Exemptions from Proof of Vaccination status

A patron who is entering an indoor area solely for the following purposes:

• To use a washroom,
• To access an outdoor area that can only be accessed through an indoor route,
• To make a retail purchase,
• While placing, picking up or paying for an order, or
• To purchase a green fee or admission.

Note: All other public health measures (indoor masking and physical distancing) continue to apply to patrons.

Staff Vaccination Status

The Province has advised that employers are not required to mandate proof of vaccination for their employees, but can choose to encourage employees to be fully vaccinated in the workplace.

Small businesses can apply for rapid tests from the Saskatchewan Health Authority at: https://www.saskatchewan.ca/government/health-care-administration-and-provider-resources/treatment-procedures-and-guidelines/emerging-public-health-issues/2019-novel-coronavirus/testing-information/rapid-testing#test-to-protect-program for staff who are unvaccinated and would be subject to negative test requirements.
