There are seven new cases of COVID-19 in Saskatchewan’s Central East Zone 5, which includes the city of Melville and nearby communities.

They’re among 13 new cases announced Friday by the provincial government.

There are 66 active coronavirus cases in Saskatchewan, 19 of which are in communal living settings.

Two people are in hospital receiving inpatient care in Saskatoon.

Regina recorded one new case on Friday; meanwhile, the Saskatchewan Health Authority issued an alert advising people to self-isolate if they came in contact with someone who tested positive after travelling through the Regina airport on Sunday.

This person travelled Sept. 6 on Air Canada flight 7947, arriving from Toronto at around 9:30 p.m. They left the airport at about 10 p.m., after collecting their luggage.

Public health officials are advising people to self-monitor for symptoms for 14 days. If they have symptoms, self-isolate and call HealthLine 8-1-1 to arrange for testing.
