To continue providing the best health and wellness services for students, here is information about virtual care providers. Using these virtual clinic platforms allows physicians in Saskatchewan to launch virtual care capabilities from their home, office, or clinic. All students that are Saskatchewan residents with a valid Saskatchewan provincial health card will have the ability to speak to a doctor via video chat, on their phone, tablet or computer, and have a covered COVID-19 screening!

During a COVID-19 screening visit, a doctor will speak with you over audio or video and assess your symptoms and risk for possible coronavirus infection. The doctors providing the screenings will not be issuing prescriptions for medications. If, based on your screening, the physician is concerned about your risk of COVID-19 infection, they will advise you on next steps in line with the Saskatchewan Health Authority guidance.
