Following public health advice and feedback from Manitobans, the province has adjusted plans for the fourth phase of the Restoring Safe Services roadmap as part of the #RestartMB program, Health, Seniors and Active Living Minister Cameron Friesen announced today.
Items moving forward with more limited implementation on July 25 include:
  • maintaining current site capacity at 30 per cent for faith-based services, pow wows, but eliminating the need for sub-groups (cohorts);
  • allowing stage performances and opening movie theatres to a maximum capacity of 30 per cent of the site, up to a maximum of 500 people;
  • allowing casinos to open at a maximum of 30 per cent of the site’s capacity; and
  • allowing retail businesses and indoor recreation sites to use non-permeable barriers when distances of two metres can not be maintained.
The following proposed changes have been deferred at this time:
  • proposed changes to indoor and outdoor gathering sizes;
  • relaxing of self-isolation requirements for those travelling from eastern and southern Ontario, Quebec and Atlantic Canada; and
  • walk-up counter service in bars, beverage rooms, brew pubs, microbreweries and distilleries.
