While some areas are seeing an influx of influenza and COVID-19, the situation in Moose Jaw is staying fairly stable. 

Flu season hit the Moose Jaw area harder than normal earlier this winter, especially among children with the presence of Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). 

According to the Saskatchewan Health Authority, the situation hasn’t changed significantly since Discover Moose Jaw spoke with medical health officer Dr. David Torr in early December. 

Meanwhile, the University of Regina released its latest COVID-19 wastewater report for Moose Jaw for the week of Dec. 25 to 31. 

COVID-19 Omicron levels increased slightly compared to the previous week but remain low for the seventh week in a row. Overall, Moose Jaw has seen levels slightly decline since mid-November. 

The viral levels are based on the highest weekly Omicron levels measure in Moose Jaw’s wastewater in early 2022. 

Influenza and COVID-19 vaccination clinics are taking place throughout the month of January. You can find a list of them here. Participating pharmacies around the city also have flu and COVID-19 shots available.
