The information below provides information for beaches in Saskatchewan as per Sask Health Authority. * People exhibiting signs of illness should not enter beach areas. * Individuals from different groups must maintain a physical distance of two metres outdoors, indoors, on the beach and in the water. Towels and beach gear should be set up with four metres between groups to allow physical distancing to be maintained for those entering or exiting the area. * There must be no more individuals per group than allowed under the private and public gathering restrictions. Presently it is at 30 persons. * Towels, beach toys, food and other items should not be shared between members of different groups. * If the beach area is full, please use adjacent grass areas, where available, to ensure group and individual physical distancing is maintained. * Bring your own picnic table covers, cleaning supplies, hand hygiene supplies and other personal items. * For unstaffed beaches, it's recommended that users clean and disinfect surfaces before and after using (e.g. picnic tables), and practice frequent hand hygiene, especially before and after consuming food. * Frequently wash your hands with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer approved by Health Canada (DIN or NPN number) if you come into contact with public or common touch surfaces (e.g. washroom facilities, shower taps, benches, tables, playground equipment). * If an area is busy, such as a picnic shelter or beach, come back when it's not busy or use another area.
