[10/01/21] Manitoba is taking additional steps to protect Manitobans and maintain health services during a fourth wave of the pandemic, Health and Seniors Care Minister Audrey Gordon and Dr. Brent Roussin, Chief Provincial Public Health Officer, announced today.

The Province of Manitoba is taking three new steps to help reduce COVID-19 transmission:
  • Moving to the ORANGE — RESTRICTED level on Manitoba’s Pandemic Response System. Dr. Roussin noted this will not affect schools, which will remain at the YELLOW — CAUTION level at this time.
  • Introducing additional public health orders that expand requirements for proof of immunization and reduce gathering sizes when unvaccinated individuals are present.
  • Implementing new patient protocols to ensure additional health system capacity when needed.

[09/02/21] Today, Chief Provincial Public Health Officer Dr. Brent Roussin announced the circumstances where proof of vaccination will be required, which will enable businesses, services, and events to be held without capacity limits or public health restrictions. 

Manitoba’s updated public health orders come into effect at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, Sep. 3 (with some exceptions to provide a short grace period for certain sectors).
