COVID-19 Health & Safety

Saskatoon Audio Visual is committed to providing a safe and healthy workplace for all team members, customers and business partners. With that, our team members will be required to follow the recommended guidelines as set out by the Government of Saskatchewan, Government of Canada, and Saskatoon Audio Visual.
