Attention Newcomers! Here is an update about the lifting of restrictions in our province:

As a result of Manitobans reaching a third vaccination benchmark, the Province announced on August 3 that it would be further easing public health restrictions effective Saturday, August 7. The following is a summary of the restrictions to take effect, subject to the new public health orders yet to be issued.

In addition to the province lifting restrictions on indoor and outdoor gatherings at private residences, the following sectors will be permitted to open without restrictions:

  • retail businesses;
  • gyms and fitness centres;
  • personal services, such as hair and nail salons;
  • libraries;
  • markets;
  • garden centres;
  • malls; and
  • day camps.

Other Sectors Permitted to Open with Limited Restrictions

Restaurants and bars will no longer be subject to a capacity limit, separation requirements or restricted operating hours. There will also be no group limits for indoor and outdoor dining, and immunization cards will no longer be required to access certain services. However, patrons will still be expected to avoid congregating or socializing between tables.

Museums, galleries and movie theatres will open up to all individuals (not only fully vaccinated people) though capacity will remain at 50%.

Casinos and bingo halls, professional sporting events, horse and auto racing, and concert halls will continue to be limited to fully vaccinated individuals; however, these facilities may now open to 100% capacity.
