The Saskatchewan government declared a state of emergency earlier this afternoon in response to eight new cases of COVID-19 in the province. Based upon this state of affairs, Saskatchewan Mutual Insurance (SMI) will be closing our Head Office and all branch offices effective today. Our office will be closed tomorrow and possibly Friday as Management works on developing a formal plan of action for our Company. We will be temporarily unavailable for calls as we prepare a plan of action to best suit the needs of our policy holders, broker partners, and other stakeholders.
We have not made this decision lightly, but based on the recommendation of health authorities we felt this is would be the most prudent first step in our plan of action. We will continue to provide additional updates to our service delivery as they come available.
We thank you for your patience during these uncertain times.
