NSBA Response to the Re-Open Saskatchewan Plan
The NSBA supports the Re-Open Saskatchewan Plan; urges that medical advice be heeded when making further decisions
Saskatoon, SK – Earlier today the Government of Saskatchewan unveiled the Re-Open Saskatchewan Plan to chart the province’s return to normal activity and easing of restrictions that have been put in place to manage the COVID-19 pandemic. The NSBA is pleased that the government has created such a plan so that the economy can re-open in an organized and safe manner and businesses can resume activity in line with the regulations in the Plan.
The NSBA also supports the mandate to make decisions about the implementation of each phase of the Plan based on information from the Chief Medical Health Officer and other medical practitioners. While the NSBA supports re-opening the economy an
d moving towards “business as usual,” it is important that medical advice and regulations are followed to ensure that there is not another spike in cases of COVID-19.
“We are happy that our government is taking a forward-looking approach to re-opening our economy and society,” said Keith Moen, Executive Director of the NSBA. “We believe that the gradual approach favoured by the government is most appropriate. We are also encouraged that these decisions, while helping the business community reclaim some aspect of normalcy, will be made based on medical advice and what is best for our communities.”
