MB: Plan for third phase announced, effective June 21
While the Manitoba government has extended the provincewide state of emergency beginning Monday, June 15 for a period of 30 days, it has also just announced that it will be releasing its final plan for the third phase for restoring services.
Following feedback from the public, the Manitoba government is releasing its plan to further ease public health restrictions and continue safely restoring services, effective June 21.
Some of the key changes 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; and
- lifting capacity limits for restaurants and bars, as long as there is a barrier or two metres of separation between people sitting at different tables.
