Cruise ships, pregnancy and high school: Sask. residents share their experiences with COVID-19

We know a lot more about COVID-19 than we did when the pandemic was declared by the World Health Organization almost a year ago on March 11, 2020. This third instalment of the Faces of COVID-19 features a wider range of cases from all over the province.

We know a lot more about COVID-19 than we did when the pandemic was declared by the World Health Organization almost a year ago on March 11, 2020.

Since July 2020, CBC Saskatchewan has been asking people all over the province to share their COVID-19 experiences with us.

We asked each person the same questions so we could compare the symptoms and impact of the novel coronavirus on them and their families.

In September 2020, we released our first feature. It included stories from patients who were diagnosed with some of the first cases in our province.

In January 2021, the second instalment featured frontline health-care workers.

This third instalment, released just ahead of the one-year anniversary in Saskatchewan on March 12, features a wider range of cases from all over the province. 

Note: The 12 individuals featured in this series were interviewed by CBC Saskatchewan between Nov. 24 and Dec.18, 2020, and may have been under different public health orders at the time they contracted the coronavirus.
