REGINA — Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe says it's too early to say whether COVID-19 restrictions will be loosened in time to allow families to gather for the holidays. Moe said residents can expect to see high COVID-19 case numbers for the next few weeks, as officials wait to see if the latest public-health measures have been effective.The province reported 325 new infections on Monday and said there are 123 people in hospital, 23 of whom are receiving intensive care.The premier noted that the new rules, which include suspending all team sports and a 30-person cap on indoor venues such as churches and bingo halls, have only been in place for a few days. The restrictions are to continue until Dec. 17, when the premier said his Saskatchewan Party government and the chief medical health officer will decide what to do next. Moe said they could choose to extend existing measures, bring in added ones or loosen the restriction that limits household gatherings "just a little bit so that we can have a few people in our home for Christmas." The limit now is five people."It's too early for us to say which of those three options would occur," Moe said."We need a little bit of time. We've had three, four days since these … additional measures have come into play, and we need to have a few days to see if they're actually going to make any impact on the numbers that we have."Moe wouldn't say how long his government will wait to see if the restrictions plateau the number of new infections."We're continuously adjusting and finding that balance of what we need to do and what we have to do," said Health Minister Paul Merrimen."We're looking at what we have to do with our hospitals to be able to adjust to the influx of patients … we're making adjustments in rural Saskatchewan to see if we can cover off nurses who have become sick."Merriman said the government's response to COVID-19 is a balancing act that juggles the needs of the health-care system with the economy and people's mental health.Opposition NDP Leader Ryan Meili said the novel coronavirus doesn't care about the holidays and Moe is playing politics by suggesting more people might be able to gather at Christmas."We're not going to see my folks at Christmas. Most families aren't and that's the wise thing to do. I hope that the premier is going to make sure that any decision he makes is based on the data," said Meili."The only thing that matters is whether those (case) numbers have come down. We aren't seeing that now. We'll see what happens in the weeks ahead."Meili said if Moe's government was serious about curbing community transmission of COVID-19 in time for Christmas, he should have closed down non-essential businesses several weeks ago to give the health system a break.

Scott Atlas has formally resigned from his post as President Trump’s special adviser on COVID-19, multiple news agencies report. Atlas began his 130-day position as a Special Government Employee in August, and his gig was set to expire this week. The Trump adviser has fielded fierce criticism for his efforts to downplay the coronavirus pandemic and block states from enacting their own measures to combat the only worsening outbreak, including enacting mask mandates and social distancing guidelines. Some federal health officials were desperate for Atlas to leave, as they worried he still held too much influence over the Trump administration’s approach to the pandemic, which has now killed more than 267,000 Americans.“He’s a destructive force,” one senior official told The Daily Beast. “I mean, at this point, I don’t know how else to explain what he’s doing. It’s really disruptive.”Earlier this month, Atlas sparked an outcry by suggesting people “rise up” over Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s latest coronavirus mandate.“You get what you accept,” he said.In his resignation letter, Atlas insisted he “always relied on the latest science and evidence, without any political consideration or influence.”“As time went on, like all scientists and health policy scholars, I learned new information and synthesized the latest data from around the world, all in an effort to provide you with the best information to serve the greater public good,” he wrote as the pandemic reached new heights, with over 13,522,247 cases in the United States alone.

NEW ORLEANS — As far as Saints coach Sean Payton is concerned, there were meaningful storylines coming out of New Orleans' lopsided victory at Denver that had nothing to do with the Broncos being forced to play without a true NFL quarterback.The Saints, after all, scored 31 points against a Denver defence that was not similarly short-handed. And New Orleans did so without record-setting quarterback Drew Brees or two starting offensive linemen — tackle Terron Armstead (COVID-19) and guard Andrus Peat (concussion) — on the left side of the line.Payton decided a conservative, run-heavy offensive game plan was in order when he learned all four of Denver's quarterbacks would be ineligible to play on Sunday because of their failure to strictly adhere to NFL COVID-19 protocols. Saints fill-in starter Taysom Hill attempted 16 passes and New Orleans still won by four touchdowns while holding a more than 10-minute advantage in time of possession.The Broncos knew they had to stop the run to have any chance of keeping the game competitive — and they couldn't. Denver started Kendall Hinton, a practice-squad wide receiver, at QB, and he completed one pass.“If there was one thing that was going to happen, if you lost all your quarterbacks, it's that you were going to bow up defensively,” Payton said of the Broncos. "So, look, I was proud of how we ran the football. I thought our guys up front, towards the end of the game, we won that battle pretty clearly.”The success of Payton's offence in Denver served as the latest example of the depth and adaptability New Orleans possesses as the Saints close in on a fourth straight playoff appearance. They've won eight straight — the first four without receiver Michael Thomas, the 2019 AP Offensive Player of the Year, and the past two without Brees, the NFL's all-time leading passer.The Saints are winning with defence, too. Sure, New Orleans was expected to dominate Denver's severely limited offence. But the Broncos' three points matched what Tom Brady's Buccaneers scored against the Saints four games earlier. And Atlanta's Matt Ryan couldn't get the Falcons in the end zone at New Orleans two weeks ago, either.The Saints have now allowed just one TD in four games and rank first overall defensively in the NFL.“We’ve eliminated some of the big plays that were coming earlier in the year. And then most importantly, is third down and red zone defence has gradually gotten better,” Payton said. “I’m pleased with how we’re playing situational defence. Yesterday obviously was a uniquely different deal, but we’re getting off the field on third down, and I think we’re affecting the quarterback more than we were earlier in the year.”WHAT’S WORKINGThe running game. The Saints rushed for 229 yards and four TDs on Sunday against a Denver defence that on average has allowed 100 yards fewer on the ground per game. All but 7 of New Orleans' yards rushing came on 40 combined carries by Latavius Murray, Alvin Kamara and Hill.“I feel like we could do that every week,” Kamara said. “We know we can run the ball. ... It’s not a surprise doing what we know we can do.”WHAT NEEDS HELPVery little at this point, but the Saints are accustomed to more efficiency in the passing game than they enjoyed in Denver. The Saints completed just nine of the 16 passes they attempted (56%) for 78 yards and took three sacks. For the season, the Saints have been completing closer to 73% of their passes and have been allowing 1.73 sacks per game.STOCK UPMurray rushed for 124 yards and two TDs on 19 carries, including a 36-yard score in which he used a hesitation move and cutback to wrong-foot defenders along the line of scrimmage before bolting down the middle of the field. It was Murray’s most carries in a game this season and his first game of the current campaign with more than 100 yards rushing.STOCK DOWNHill drew praise from Payton for how he managed a conservative game plan, and the Saints won easily. But Brees’ backup resembled a work in progress as a passer in Denver, taking a step back from his first start a week earlier. Hill was intercepted once, made another throw into double coverage that was nearly intercepted, took three sacks, did not throw for a touchdown and had a 43.2 passer rating. Hill is still looking for his first career TD pass.KEY NUMBER7 — The number of consecutive games won by the Saints when Brees has not been available. They went 5-0 with Teddy Bridgewater in 2019 and are now 2-0 with Hill this season.NEXT STEPSThe Saints play their second straight road game and meet the Falcons for the second time in three weeks when they visit Atlanta on Sunday.___More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFLBrett Martel, The Associated Press

While the construction was severely impacted during the first and second quarter of this year due to the strict lockdowns, our team continued to deliver value to our customers and the recurring tower lease business did not suffer the impact of the economic slowdown,” commented President and Chief Executive Officer Alejandro Ochoa. “With increased demand for new BTS sites, specially from Colombia and Mexico, construction of new sites rebounded during the third quarter and the Company has as of today 28 new towers that are being constructed. These new sites will come into service during the fourth quarter of this year. The Company has also been awarded with new sites and construction is about to break ground. I am exceptionally proud of what we have been able to produce this year so far, and very thankful for the accomplishments by our team. While 2020 has brought many unexpected challenges, our team has executed well across each aspect of our business and we are envisioning a record year in 2021,” Mr. Ochoa added.Highlights Third Quarter 2020: * Revenue totaled $542,323 and $7,327,250 for the three and nine months ended on September 30, 2020 respectively. Accumulated Revenue for the year as of September 30, 2020 marks a record Revenue for the Company. * Gross Margin during the third quarter totaled $458,443 and increased 4% as compared to the similar quarter of the previous year. Accumulated Gross Margin for the nine months ended on September 30, 2020 totals $3,363,754, an increase of $734,709 or 28% as compared to the corresponding period of the prior year. * A total of three (3) new towers were placed into operations and one (1) new collocation was signed during the third quarter of 2020. * As construction lockdowns that were generated by the pandemic begun to ease, the Company resumed construction.

Revenue during this period increased by $ 1,728,050, or 31%, as compared to the corresponding period of the previous year where revenue totaled $5,599,200. Revenue increase in the nine month period of 2020 as compared to the immediately preceding year was mainly the result of the disposition of a selected portfolio of towers and the increase in the monthly tower rent business.Commenting on the results, Santiago F. Rossi, CFO Tower One, stated:“As construction activity continues to increase across Colombia and Mexico, and new orders are being received, we continue to focus our attention in a lean and efficient operation. With emphasis on improving the financial reporting of the Company, the initiatives taken continues to enhance the quality and timing of our financial reporting. We expect that the final roll-out of the Company’s accounting and reporting system be completed by December 2020. Providing on-time and relevant information is an essential element to being able to deliver new sites to our customers on time and on budget. We continue to implement new procedures for an improved environment of financial control which is vital to operate efficiently.The economic slowdown triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic challenged all of us to find new and creative ways to achieve the results more efficiently. In that pursuit for efficiency, we found areas of improvement and implemented adjustments to the way in which we operate that will result in long term savings for the Company. We plan to maintain this approach going forward and to closely monitor our operating expenses.The Company received several proposals and is working with potential lenders and investors that will provide the necessary capital for the construction of more than 200 towers.”About Tower One Tower One’s principal business is to build, own and operate multi-tenant wireless telecommunications infrastructure (“towers”) in Latin America.
