Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe announced Thursday that the province will implement mandatory masking, a proof of vaccination policy and a requirement for government employees to get vaccinated or receive negative tests.

Saskatchewan had the highest COVID 19 case rates per capita over a seven-day period as of Thursday, and the second-lowest vaccination rates among provinces.

On Wednesday, Premier Jason Kenney announced new COVID 19 measures, including limits on social gatherings and strict regulations on businesses, workplaces and places of worship and a new proof-of-vaccination program where Albertans will be required to provide proof of immunization or a negative COVID-19 test to enter certain establishments where the business has agreed to comply with the program.

Alberta, which has the highest case rates and the lowest vaccination rates in the country, declared a public state of emergency Wednesday.
