Saskatchewan enters Step 2 of the Re-Open Saskatchewan Road Map on June 20 and in-person gathering limits increase across a number of sectors and for private gatherings.
Most notably, private indoor gatherings will increase from 10 to 15 people. Note that the provincial masking mandate remains in place under Step Two.
The following have no capacity limits, though physical distancing and masking requirements remain in effect: restaurants and licensed establishments, grocery stores, public and farmers' markets, clothing and retail stores, personal service facilities (salons, etc.), greenhouse and landscaping locations.
The capacity limits increase to 150 from 30 for patrons/spectators in the following sectors though physical distancing and masking requirements remain in effect: sports and activities, arena facilities, libraries, movie and live theatre venues, performing arts venues, casinos and bingo halls, for temporary food vendors, racing, livestock sales and rodeos, banquets and conference facilities; car and trade shows.
All indoor facilities and activities and outdoor activities where two metres of physical distancing cannot be consistently maintained must continue to abide by physical distancing and masking requirements in Step Two.
Effective June 20:
Table capacity limits are being removed in all restaurants and licensed establishments. Previously, they were limited to six per table. Dining tables will still need to maintain two metres of physical distance or have a barrier placed between them.
Retailers can welcome more shoppers, as capacity limits will be removed as long as two metres of physical distance can be maintained between customers.
Indoor sport competitions will be able to resume, as many restrictions are being lifted. Tournaments will be permitted, however interprovincial play is not and no more than 150 spectators are permitted in the facility.
Capacity limits for banquet and conference facilities will increase to 150 people. Attendees may be served food and/or beverage in the facility, but must remain seated except when getting their food/beverage, using washroom facilities or entering/exiting the premises. Self-serve is not permitted at this time.
The number of movie goers may increase to 150 from the current limit of 30.
Dance recitals and competitions will be able to resume for all ages and the maximum capacity limit for spectators of all performing arts facilities will be 150.
