The Saskatchewan government says it will lift all public health measures by July 11 - including the mandatory masking and gathering size limits - even though the province hasn't reached its final COVID-19 vaccination target.

That announcement said other remaining restrictions could be removed as soon as Saskatchewan approached 70 per cent of residents ages 12 and older having received their first vaccine dose.

The government previously said that while masks will no longer be required under the public health order, people may still wear masks based on their own comfort level and requirements may be in effect in workplaces and at the discretion of business owners.

As of end of day Friday, June 18, there were an additional 19,737 vaccinations administered.

The update said 70 per cent of residents over the age of 18 and 69 per cent of those over 12 have received at least their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

Step Two of the roadmap started today.

Private indoor gatherings will increase from 10 to 15 people.

Table capacity limits are being removed in all restaurants and licensed establishments.

Seventy-nine per cent of those over the age of 40+ have received their first dose.

Many people in Saskatchewan continue to roll up their sleeve for a second shot.

The additional 19,737 doses of COVID-19 vaccine reported today were administered to residents living in the following zones: Far North West, 405; Far North Central, 20; Far North East, 406; North West, 1,763; North Central, 1,760; North East, 322; Saskatoon, 5,615; Central West, 511; Central East, 1,404; Regina, 3,535; South West, 724; South Central, 1,545; and South East, 1,171.

The person was aged 70 to 79 and from northwestern Saskatchewan, according to the province.

There have been 3,625 cases (98 per cent) that have recovered, and four people are hospitalized.

Four new lineage results were reported for Variants of Concern today.

No new cases were detected last Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday, making this the fourth time in seven days with no new virus cases detected in Malta.

The province processed 1,384 tests on Saturday.

There are 15 active cases of COVID-19 Variants of Concern (VOCs) in NITHA communities. Of the 6,447 VOCs with lineages identified by whole genome sequencing in Saskatchewan, 6,136 are Alpha (B.1.1.7), 231 are Gamma (P.1), 70 are Delta (B.1.617.2) and 10 are Beta (B.1.351).

In his Twitter message, Moe acknowledged that COVID-19 has not disappeared, reminding people without a vaccination that they are still at risk.

However, with COVID-19 numbers down and vaccination numbers up, Saskatchewan's premier is also optimistic.

"Saskatchewan has become a much safer place".
