The situation will be re-evaluated at each phase, to ensure that the pandemic remains under control, said Mr. Moe.
The recovery will not happen suddenly, but quietly, as if you turned the dimmer switch of a light bulb, gave the example of the prime minister. “We’ll gradually illuminate the Saskatchewan economy”, a-t-il imaged by referring to a process of “gradual, methodical, and careful.”
Thus, “companies need to adhere to more stringent rules of social distancing,” warned Scott Moe.
