SASKATOON -- The Saskatchewan Health Authority has declared a COVID-19 outbreak among some Saskatoon water and sewer maintenance crews.
The work group is located at 88 King Street, which is only accessible by staff, the city said in a news release.
The outbreak is unrelated to a previous outbreak declaration in Water and Sewer Maintenance at the end of January 2021.
The city says it doesn’t expect operations to be affected as a result of the outbreak.
