All In It Together

Finding Comfort During a Crisis

Board of Directors - Pat Friesen

Home. It’s a word I’ve thought about a lot lately.

Like many of you, I’ve been social distancing and working from home. As COVID-19 continues to spread, our lives have moved inward—in the house with only close family or perhaps even on our own. Home, it seems, has become our safest and most comforting retreat.

It’s been an adjustment in all our lives. But like other leaders and community partners have said, I want to remind you that we will get through this. Together. Maybe not in the same room or across a restaurant table or in the workplace, but in spirit. We can help each other when we need it most.

That means taking all necessary precautions and following the advice of trusted health experts. Stay home as much as possible. When you have to venture out, regularly wash your hands for at least 20 seconds; use alcohol-based hand sanitizer; cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when coughing or sneezing; and stay a couple of metres apart from others.

We also want you to rest a little easier knowing CAA Saskatchewan is here for you. Though our stores may be temporarily closed to walk-in customers, we encourage Members and clients to reach out to us online, by email or phone for roadside, travel, insurance or membership needs. Call us at 1.800.564.6222.

Do you have future travel plans? Speak to an experienced travel consultant and always buy travel insurance and understand your policy coverage. Allow additional time for air travel or other modes of transportation. Pack important travel essentials, like a valid passport, health insurance card and extra prescription medication. And check the government’s travel website at travel.gc.ca for important advisories. 

At CAA Saskatchewan, our top priority is your safety. To speak to someone at the Saskatchewan Health Authority, see saskhealthauthority.ca. Visit canada.ca/en/health-canada to keep up with the latest information from the Government of Canada.
During this time, we know hope is essential. That’s why we packed this issue with local fun, summer tips and inspiration for future getaways. 

Please be safe, take care of each other and enjoy the comforts of home.
