Saskatchewan updated the definition of the COVID-19 infectious period to align with the national definition, which means there has been a correction to hospitalizations.

There are 125 hospitalizations, however with the correction as of Dec. 22, there are an additional 40 COVID-19 patients in hospital to bring the total to 165. These are not new hospitalizations. These are patients no longer infectious for COVID-19, which had shifted them from active to recovered cases, but still experiencing the complications of COVID-19 illness.

One hundred and thirty-five people are receiving inpatient care and 30 are in intensive care.
