307 new COVID-19 cases in Sask.; staffing issue delays some updated statistics

Saskatchewan residents are not getting the complete picture of Sunday’s COVID-19 update due to an “unexpected, one-day staffing issue”, according to the provincial government.

“This delay includes the number of recoveries as well as regional breakdowns,” reads the update from the government. “Full details will be included in [Monday’s] case summary news release.”

Due to the delay of Sunday’s new recoveries, the province has not updated the active case count. Saturday’s active count was at 3,186.

Saskatchewan is reporting 307 new cases of COVID-19 as of January 10. There are no new deaths to report.

187 people are in hospital with 156 people receiving inpatient care and 31 people in intensive care
