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

COVID-19 transmission info

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)
