SPSA introduces new phone line for non-healthcare COVID-19 questions

The Saskatchewan Public Safety Agency has launched a toll-free health line for people who have general questions about the Coronavirus pandemic that are not health-specific.

The line will be staffed 18 hours a day from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. Emergency operators can answer questions about a range of items, from travel restrictions to government services.

“We expect this new line to free up room for 811 healthcare professionals to reach more people who may be experiencing medical issues,” SPSA president Marlo Pritchard said in a media release.

Saskatchewan residents outside Regina can call 1-855-559-5502. Residents inside Regina can call 1-306-787-8539.
