The outbreak of the novel coronavirus, known as COVID-19, has not been confirmed or detected in Saskatchewan so the Junos will continue on as scheduled.
The news was announced in Saskatoon on Monday, the same day the first death from the coronavirus was announced in British Columbia.
“We have had no positive case. We have had no signs of local transmission but we’ve had people who’ve travelled from a variety of places,” said Dr. Johnmark Opondo, medical health officer for the Saskatchewan Health Authority in Saskatoon.
“We are vigilant and we are looking out.”
