Moe, who has yet to receive his test results, acknowledged that restrictions brought in in recent weeks — including a provincewide mask mandate and a five-person restriction on home-based gatherings — haven't been enough to slow the illness or reduce hospital admissions.

"Had they allowed us to take a sharp downturn in our transmission rate we wouldn't be out here today with additional measures to ensure that we can achieve that," he said.

Health officials reported 164 new cases of COVID-19 on Wednesday and said hospitalizations had risen to 111, with 19 people in intensive care.

The premier said the province's seven-day average of 214 daily cases is too high.

Moe repeated that he wants to avoid closing down non-essential businesses, such as gyms and casinos, in favour of public-health rules which target specific sectors and activities where transmission of the novel coronavirus is occurring most.

Saskatchewan's chief medical health officer, Dr. Saqib Shahab, said sports is one way COVID-19 is spreading into schools and workplaces.

As a result, all team sports across amateur and recreational leagues is to be suspended starting Friday until Dec. 17. That includes hockey, curling and dance.

Athletes and dancers 18 years old and younger will still be able to practise in groups of eight if masks are worn and participants stay at least three metres apart.

The Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League responded within hours of the announcement. It said it plans to suspend games after Friday until after Christmas.

The government is also expanding its mandatory mask rule to include indoor fitness activities and is limiting to four the number of people allowed at a table in a restaurant or bar.

Capacity at casinos, bingo halls, arenas and movie theatres will be capped at 30 people. The limit will also apply to conferences, worship services, funerals and weddings.

"These are by no means half measures," Moe said.

"The measures here today are substantial. They will have an impact."

The premier said his government tried to minimize the economic hit businesses will take because of the added restrictions by consulting with industry first.

Moe said no decision has been made as to how his government will support businesses that do feel some impact from the latest measures.

"I don't have a date on when we will be moving forward — or if we will be moving forward — with a compensation package."
