Exposure Protocols

If you have any concerns about your health or possible exposure to COVID-19 call Saskatchewan's HealthLine at 811.

If you suspect you may be a close contact, self-monitor your health by using the Covid Testing/Symptom Check channel on PAWS. If you feel sick please follow the Feeling Sick Guidelines.

Activities with Elevated Transmission Risk

At this time, USask activities deemed to be of elevated risk for COVID-19 transmission include those in which people:

  • share indoor spaces for prolonged periods of time (i.e., large classes, night classes)
  • reside in communal living arrangements, such as student housing
  • participate in athletics, including practices, competitions, and performances
  • travel
  • play wind instruments or sing
  • interact with the public (particularly groups that may not/cannot be vaccinated) as a requirement for their work and/or study objectives (i.e., medical/clinical work, including medicine, dentistry, physio, nursing, and pharmacy; fieldwork, including activities within other communities; education placements; and human research)

Individuals may be required to be vaccinated if they are working and/or participating in areas where activities with elevated COVID-19 transmission risk are occurring. Employees who work in these areas are encouraged to speak with their Human Resources Strategic Business Advisor (HR SBA)

The primary mode by which COVID-19 spreads is through exposure to respiratory fluid containing infectious virus. The virus-containing particles can range in size from large droplets to small, airborne particles that remain suspended in the air for long periods of time1.

Outbreak investigations and scientific studies have demonstrated that the transmission of COVID-19 is highest in the following settings:2,3

  • Crowded places, especially if physical distancing and masking cannot be maintained
  • Close-contact settings, especially where people have conversations very near each other
  • Confined and enclosed spaces, particularly those with poor ventilation
  • Settings where particles are expelled from the mouth, such as singing and breathing heavily during exercise
  • Places where aerosol-producing medical procedures are occurring (i.e., hospitals, dental clinics)
