Message from Dr. James McMillan:
“Rosthern Medical Clinic and Rosthern Hospital ER will be resuming services on Wed, Apr 1, 2020 at 8:00 AM.
We will continue with current vigilant social distancing recommendations to minimize the amount of traffic in healthcare facilities.
Rosthern Medical Clinic will continue to do as many clinic appointments as possible by phone. If your concern absolutely cannot be addressed by phone, we will give you a scheduled time for an in-person appointment at the clinic. However, to decrease your potential contact with others, we will not have you waiting in the waiting room. Please notify our clinic staff by phone (if possible) when you arrive at the clinic, and they will call you when they are ready to take you directly into an examining room.
Rosthern Hospital ER will continue to see patients. But please remember that the emergency room must be reserved for true emergencies. If your visit is not an emergency, do not come to the ER. Please make arrangements to be seen at a more appropriate setting. We MUST NOT have unnecessary traffic in the hospital. If you are unsure if you should be seen in person or where you should be seen, please call Rosthern Hospital (306-232-4811) or Rosthern Medical Clinic (306-232-4894), or 811.
Rosthern Hospital will maintain its restricted visitor policy as per the direction of the health authority.
Rosthern Hospital Lab and X-ray department will be open its regular hours for urgent outpatient labs and X-rays. These must be authorized by a physician. Routine, non-urgent labs and X-rays will not be done as per the direction of the health authority. If, prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, you had been instructed to get labwork or an X-ray done in April or May and are unsure if your investigations are urgent or necessary, please contact your physician.
We appreciate your cooperation and understanding.
Thank you for your patience, and we look forward to serving you in the coming days!”

With the potential for shortages of household supplies such as toilet paper, SaskWater strongly encourages its customers to advise residents not to flush other items being used for sanitary purposes down the toilet. These actions could pose significant issues for residential plumbing, local collection systems and SaskWater operations.
Items such as disposable wipes, paper towels, napkins and tissues should be thrown in the garbage. Even disposable wipes labelled as flushable should be thrown in the garbage as they do not sufficiently break down in wastewater and can cause serious plumbing issues.
SaskWater is closely monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak and following the guidelines set out by the Public Health Agency of Canada, the Saskatchewan Chief Medical Health Officer and the Government of Saskatchewan. Our services that are essential to public health and safety will be maintained by qualified SaskWater employees.

The Town would like to inform our residents as to the procedures surrounding the Town Siren. The siren operates differently based on specific community needs.
EMO ( Emergency Measures Organization)
Emergency personnel will set off and continuously run the Siren in the case of an EMO Situation in order to alert the general public to an impending emergency situation. Examples of EMO events include Severe & Dangerous Weather, Mass Casualty Situations, Public Threat, Evacuation Orders, etc. In the event of an EMO situation, the general public is encouraged to check local radio stations, Environment Canada communication, Wakaw Community & Recreation Facebook Page or this website. https://wakaw.ca
Our Firefighters have a communication system that reaches them immediately and directly when they are needed. If, for any reason, not enough volunteers respond initially the siren will run one round at a time to call for more volunteers. It will repeat until enough volunteers have responded to the call.
At this time we would like to introduce our EMO Coordinator, Ray Baumann. Ray can be reached at email@example.com
