Across the provincial border, Saskatchewan reported three new cases of COVID-19 - two in Saskatoon and one in a community in the far north. Along with word of the three new cases came 14 separate recoveries from the disease. Saskatchewan has reported more than twice as many cases of the disease - 630 to 292 - and has more than five times as many active cases - 88 to 17 - compared to Manitoba.
