Provincial Response Level: CRITICAL

Community spread of COVID-19 is not contained and/or there are significant strains on our health care system. As of Thurday, November 12, the province of Manitoba moved to the Critical level (red) on the #RestartMB Pandemic Response System to halt COVID-19 transmission and protect Manitoba's most vulnerable citizens.

Updated public health orders go into effect November 20 at 12:01 a.m. and will further restrict gatherings at private residences and allow critical retailers to only sell essential items.

The new orders will be in effect province-wide and include:

  • A person who resides in a private resident must not permit a person who does not reside in that residence to enter the property or residence. There are some exceptions for those who live alone and for childcare, healthcare, property maintenance and emergencies.
  • Gatherings in indoor or outdoor public places are limited to five persons for some specific purposes like weddings, funerals and physically distanced outdoor activities. The fundamentals should still be practiced in these situations, including mask wearing and frequent handwashing.
  • Retail businesses must sell only essential items, ensure compliance with capacity limits and implement measures to ensure physical distancing.
  • Retailers can continue to sell essential or non-essential items online, by telephone or by remote means for delivery or pick-up.
  • Travel to and from northern Manitoba is restricted and non-essential travel is discouraged.
  • Other critical services can operate as set out under the public health orders.
  • All personal service businesses, including hair salons, barbers and sites offering manicures, pedicures and other esthetic services, must close.
  • Gyms and fitness centres must close.
  • Religious and cultural gatherings must close or be provided virtually only.
  • Restaurants must close to the public and may be open for delivery, drive-thru or takeout only.
  • All recreational activities, sports facilities, casinos, museums, galleries, libraries, movie theatres and concert halls must close.
