Novel Coronavirus COVID-19
 

The #COVIDCarefulMB Program


Being COVID Careful means seeking out reliable, accurate information and taking the necessary precautions to keep you and those you care about safe from COVID-19.

With no targeted treatment or vaccine available at this time, critical public health measures are the “new normal” to control the rapid spread of the virus and protect our family, friends and neighbours.


Show that you are being COVID Careful by sharing the ‘I’m COVID Careful’ poster in your windows/workplaces and using #COVIDCarefulMB on social media.

#COVIDCarefulMB Prevention


Each of us have a role to play to reduce the virus from spreading. Follow these critical requirements, make it easier to restore services and ease other restrictions.

  • Stay informed, be prepared and follow public health advice.
  • Practice good hygiene (hand washing, avoid touching your face, cough into your sleeve, disinfect frequently touched surfaces).
  • Maintain physical distancing as much as possible when outside of the home.
  • Continue increased environmental cleaning and ventilation in public places and worksites.
  • Stay at home and away from others for at least 14 days if you have symptoms or are feeling ill. Do not go to school/work and follow public health advice if you are sick.
  • Reduce personal non-essential travel and self-isolate for 14 days if you return from another province or country.
  • While wearing a non-medical mask is NOT a replacement for physical distancing, hand washing and monitoring your health, wearing non-medical masks may offer additional protection to others, especially when physical distancing is hard to maintain.
  • Wear a non-medical mask or face covering if you experience symptoms and cannot avoid close contact with others, such as when going out to access medical care.
  • Do not go to other public places when you are sick, even if you are wearing a mask.
  • Use non-medical masks to protect others in situations where physical distancing cannot be consistently maintained, such as shopping and public transit.

#COVIDCarefulMB in Cottage Country


Public health officials advise Manitobans to stay home as much as possible to prevent the spread of COVID-19. When people do go out, they should follow the guidelines when travelling to our cabins, campgrounds, trails, parks and cottages by being COVID Careful.

Public health orders require anyone coming into Manitoba, including out-of-province visitors, to self-isolate and self-monitor for symptoms for 14 days, or for the duration of your stay if it is less than 14 days.
