Saskatchewan reported 11 new cases of COVID-19 on Saturday as it blew past its previous daily testing record.
On Friday, 2,873 COVID-19 tests were performed in the province, compared to the previous record of 2,129 tests done on Aug. 6. The provincial government continues to push for a testing capacity of 4,000 per day.
Two new cases are in Saskatoon, one in the Central West, one in the Central East, five in Regina and two in the South Central zone, according to a news release.
Both of the new cases in Saskatoon are linked to the outbreak at Brand Industries, which was declared on Friday after six cases were detected there. Public health believes the outbreak is connected to out-of-province travel.
In a statement to Postmedia on Friday, Brandt Group of Companies confirmed that a group of employees at its Saskatoon manufacturing facility tested positive for COVID-19.
“We are monitoring the situation closely and following all directions as set out by the Saskatchewan Health Authority,” the company said.آموزش سئو
