The province saw a double-digit drop in active cases of COVID-19 on Good Friday, as reported by the Sask Health Authority.

The SHA announced 21 new recoveries from the coronavirus in their daily update, pushing the overall total to 136.

Meanwhile, seven new cases were reported – six have been confirmed, though one remains presumptive and will be sent to the National Microbiology Lab in Winnipeg for additional testing.

That spells 285 overall reported cases. With those 136 recoveries and still three deaths, the active case total dropped down to 146.

There has now been a total of 30 cases reported in health care workers, though again, the SHA notes the source of infection may not be related to the work place.

Once again, 15 cases have still been reported in the south region of the province.
