As the weather heats up and more people venture out to beaches and parks, visitors are reminded to know their limits and to supervise and keep children within arms’ reach at all times. Due to COVID-19, the province’s life-jacket loaner program will not be operating at this time so individuals should bring their own life jackets/personal flotation devices if they are a non-swimmer.
Standard physical distancing practices should be followed, including two metres or six feet of separation from other beach users outside your family group, and four metres or 12 feet of separation between each group’s towels and blankets on the beach to allow for foot traffic to and from the water. More information on guidelines for Manitoba beaches can be found at www.gov.mb.ca/sd/parks/provincial-park-beaches/index.html.

The draft plan for restoring services in Phase Two released May 21 builds on measures from Restoring Safe Services:  Manitoba’s Pandemic and Economic Roadmap for Recovery, which set out an evidence-based plan to ease public health measures that had escalated since mid-January. As of May 22, gathering size limits were increased to 25 people indoor and 50 outdoor, while professional sports teams were allowed to return to their training facilities, as long as precautions were taken and the public is not allowed into those facilities.

Effective today, public health orders have been modified to increase the limit on gathering size to no more than 25 people for indoor premises and 50 for outdoor areas, providing social distancing measures are in place. In addition, players, coaches, managers, training staff and medical personnel employed by or affiliated with a professional sports team may attend the team’s facilities for the purposes of training and practicing, provided that no members of the public are permitted to enter those facilities.

Understanding the patterns and trends of COVID-19 transmission is an important component of Manitoba’s reopening strategy and will inform the gradual lifting of public health restrictions and other elements of the province’s COVID-19 response. Manitoba has developed several options for sentinel testing including introducing voluntary asymptomatic testing for clients in a number of health-care settings to further monitor the presence of COVID-19 in the province.

Manitobans who present for non-COVID-19 related care may be offered the testing as part of sentinel surveillance. Testing for COVID-19 is still not recommended for Manitobans who do not have symptoms associated with the virus. People without symptoms should not seek out testing at this time.

The significant efforts taken by Manitobans to reduce the spread of COVID-19 continue to have the desired effect and portions of the Phase 2 re-opening plan can now be implemented. As of Friday, May 22 public health orders will be modified to increase the limit on gathering size to no more than 25 people for indoor premises and 50 for outdoor areas, providing social distancing measures are in place. Other changes such as an expansion of the types of businesses that can re-open are being discussed, and more details will be announced once those decisions are made.

In addition, work is underway to allow limited, outdoor visitation at personal care homes. Individual facilities are putting procedures in place and will be contacting families directly to provide details, including the start date, locations and hours for visitation. Facilities are expected to have this in place by Friday May 29. This is not a return to normal but does provide a balance between ensuring the health of residents while retaining access to social connections. Enhanced screening will occur upon arrival along with hand hygiene and physical distancing. A maximum of two visitors will be allowed at a time Indoor visits will remain suspended for now, except for compassionate reasons.


May 19

Manitoba health officials say the province’s latest COVID-19 case is an employee who had been working at Walmart at the Southdale Location. The individual was working on the floor, but it’s unlikely that there have been contact with customers, but Manitoba Health wanted to ensure that the community was aware of this. The individual was working from 4:00-9:00 PM on Saturday, May 9th. Officials want to reiterate that this virus is not airborne and is spread by close prolonged contact and there is minimal risk in this situation. However, if there is anyone symptomatic at the time and they were in that area it is recommended that they get tested.
