According to a report by CBC News, Saskatchewan’s premier Scott Moe wants to see fans in stadiums for CFL’s proposed kickoff in August. He said so at a recent session of the legislature that concluded on Friday.
“I’m not certain that we will get it right full, but we most certainly do want people to get into Mosaic here this summer,”
Mosaic Stadium based in Regina, Saskatchewan is the home of the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
“We’ll achieve that in the same way that we’re achieving our reopening plan here in Saskatchewan, and that is very similar to turning up the lights with a dimmer switch.”
Moe said the province was looking into a plan that would see some fans return to the stadium in a limited capacity before essentially “turning up” the restricted capacity. “
COVID numbers are starting to improve across Canada with places like Alberta dropping to fewer than 2,000 new cases per day for 7 consecutive days. In Ontario, they are now opening COVID-19 vaccine booking to 18+ starting Tuesday. The question is will this be enough to get the season started on time.
In the state of Maryland, in a surprise announcement over the weekend, the governor announced a lifting of the mask requirement for anyone who has been vaccinated. Something no one predicted this summer, let alone a month ago.
