The Government of Saskatchewan has announced new regulations around mandatory masking and a proof of vaccination (or negative test) policy.
The provincial mask policy will apply to all public indoor spaces, effective Friday, September 17, 2021. Therefore, all Realtors® and clients will be required to wear masks during showings and open houses. Proof of vaccination will begin October 1, 2021 and will apply to specific establishments, businesses and event venues. Real Estate is a professional service and a proof of vaccination policy is not required.
The SRA continues to monitor the situation closely and will provide more information as it becomes available. These recommendations are subject to change as we follow the lead of the Saskatchewan Health Authority and Chief Medical Health Officer, Dr. Shahab. New public health measures on mandatory masking (on indoor public spaces) and proof of vaccination can be found here.
- Open will continue to be permitted with mandatory masking measures in place.
- As of today, masking is required in both SRA Service Centres as they are public spaces, and they remain open to the public.
- SRA Service Centres will not be implementing a proof of vaccination policy or be requiring proof of a negative COVID test for events or meetings, at this time.
The Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) is offering self-testing through the Test to Protect program. With more contagious variants showing up in more areas across our province, having access to rapid testing can detect COVID-19 to protect individuals and stop the spread to others. Rapid Testing kits are available to REALTORS® here.
