International Travel/Returning to Canada

AS OF APRIL 27, 2020

Recently, concerns have been raised about travel between provinces.  The SHA has introduced the Health Care Workforce Screening Questionnaire which includes screening questions on out of country travel and out of province travel.   As noted below, if an employee has been outside of Canada, they must self-isolate for 14 days upon returning; however, if they have been outside of Saskatchewan but within Canada in the previous 14 days, they may be still be able to work but are advised to self-monitor.

A mandatory 14 – day self-isolation remains in place for any traveler returning to Canada, including health care workers.

The self-isolation period begins on the date you arrived in Canada. For more information, see the examples on the Saskatchewan government website here.

If the above applies to you, inform your manager and advise them that you are required to self-isolate. Health care workers are not exempt from this order unless they are required to maintain essential health care services or provide emergency health care.

During this mandatory self-isolation period, you should be paid at your regular pay rate. No deductions should be made from your sick leave, vacation, or other leave banks. Please verify your pay information on Gateway.

If you have any concerns related to travel, please contact labourrelations@hsas.ca.
