Province considers relaxing

pandemic restrictions

Dr. Brent Roussin, Manitoba’s chief public health officer

The Manitoba government is making another attempt to reopen the province with proposed changes to pandemic restriction rules that could allow most businesses to reopen with larger capacity limits as soon as the end of this week – and they are asking for public feedback about the changes.

Although case numbers are dropping and vaccination efforts are ramping up, there is also concern about more infectious and possibly deadlier coronavirus variants in the province. Five cases of the B117 coronavirus variant have been confirmed in Manitoba.
