WINNIPEG - Phase Three of the re-opening of Manitoba will go ahead on schedule on Sunday.
“Thanks to the efforts of all Manitobans and based on advice from our public health officials, I pleased to announce that we are in a position to move forward once again in our phased approach of restarting our economy,” said Pallister. “Thousands of Manitobans provided their input and feedback on numerous proposed measures for Phase Three of and their support for our plan to further ease public health restrictions is reflected in the next steps of our economic recovery roadmap.”
There are a handful of changes from the plan put forward by the province last week. They include;
• removing the maximum capacity of 300 people at any site provided the gathering can be physically divided into sub-groups of 50 or fewer indoors or 100 or fewer outdoors, to a maximum 30 per cent of usual capacity;
• allowing people from British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut, and people living in the area of the northwestern Ontario (west of Terrace Bay) to visit Manitoba without having to self-isolate for 14 days;
• ensuring those travelling to northern Manitoba must continue to respect any restrictions that have been put in place by local communities and First Nations;
• lifting self-isolation requirements on a case-by-case basis where sectors propose and provide satisfactory plans to address public health requirements for necessary travel; and
• lifting capacity limits for restaurants, bars, beverage rooms, brew pubs, microbreweries and distilleries, as long as tables and seating are arranged so there is a temporary or physical barrier, or two metres of separation between people sitting at different tables.
