Provincial Government No Longer Issuing COVID-19 Updates on Weekends/Holidays

The provincial government is changing its schedule regarding COVID advisories.

As of this week, it will no longer issue COVID-19 advisories on weekends or provincial holidays. In addition, the hub online will not be updated on weekends.

Given the case numbers in the province, government intends to move away from updates on the weekends. Having said that, if circumstances dictate otherwise — as it did earlier this year — there will be an advisory and/or briefing.

Since this is a long weekend, case counts on Tuesday will reflect cases from the weekend.

Health Minister John Haggie and Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Janice Fitzgerald will be there, however Premier Andrew Furey will not.
