Restoring Safe Services

Restoring Safe Services - Phase Three

No sooner than June 21

Subsequent to Phase Two, additional reopening steps will be considered. New phases will be considered and, if supported by evidence, implemented in three-to-four week intervals, ensuring adequate time between phases is provided to monitor cases and ensure easing and further restrictions are able to respond to the evidence of viral transmission. As the situation evolves, Manitoba public health officials will make decisions based on evidence at the time.

Based on data, the following changes may be made in subsequent phases:

  • Relax occupancy limits of 50 per cent of normal business levels or one person per 10 square metres, for retail services, therapeutic or health care businesses and hair stylists/barbers.
  • Fully re-open bars, beverage rooms, micro-brewers and similar businesses.
  • Re-open movie theaters, casinos, bingo halls and indoor recreational facilities, with capacity limitations.
  • Amusement parks and similar outdoor recreation businesses.
  • Other similar businesses with capacity limitations.
