People in Saskatchewan hoping to host a big wedding after July 11 can now start planning for their celebration.

SHA indicates on their Re-opening Roadmap timetable that the majority of public health measures will be lifted. Both remaining restrictions could be removed soon as Saskatchewan approaches 70 per cent of residents ages 12 and older having received their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine. This represents two days of vaccine administration (Wednesday June 16 and Thursday June 17).

However, with COVID-19 numbers down and vaccination numbers up, Saskatchewan's premier is also optimistic.

There are 98 new cases of COVID-19 to report in Saskatchewan on June 18, 2021. There were 556 doses administered with zone of residence pending.
