Restoring Services (Phase One) Beginning May 4

Critical public health measures and current travel restrictions will remain. This includes mandatory self-isolation upon one’s return to Manitoba and limits on travel to the north. Priority elective surgeries have been restarted, diagnostics screening will resume and some non-essential businesses will be reopened:

• schools will remain closed
• non-urgent surgery and diagnostic procedures restored
• therapeutic and health care services restored
• retail businesses reopen
• restaurants – patio/walk-up services restored
• hairstylists and barbers reopen
• museums, galleries and libraries reopen
• outdoor recreation and campgrounds reopen

If results during or at the end of phase one or any future phases are not favourable, the province will not proceed with further easing of secondary public health measures and may reintroduce others. If virus activity remains low, we will give serious consideration in mid-May to easing the restrictions on group size.
