The current public health orders that were put in place for the May long weekend to keep Manitobans close to home and reduce transmission rates, will remain in effect for the remainder of the week. All current public health orders will remain in effect until Saturday, May 29 at 12:01 a.m. and include:
- indoor public gatherings are not permitted and visitors are not permitted on private property, except in certain circumstances;
- outdoor gatherings with anyone from outside a household are not allowed and this applies to all recreation spaces including playgrounds, golf courses, parks and sports fields;
- retail businesses may only operate at 10 per cent capacity or 100 customers, whichever is fewer, and only one person per household will be allowed to enter a business, with some exceptions, such as a single parent with children or someone who requires a caregiver; and
- many businesses and organizations will remain closed for in person service including gyms and fitness clubs, restaurants and bars, personal service businesses, museums, galleries and libraries.

“For all Manitobans over the age of 12, I urge to book your vaccine appointment right now and your second-dose appointment if you are eligible,” said Dr. Brent Roussin. “Getting vaccinated and following the public health orders are necessary in order to bend our COVID curve back down and eventually get back to doing some of the activities that Manitobans miss right now.”
