Fewer Restrictions Today

Manitoba Post StaffNews

WINNIPEG – The province’s public health orders have been adjusted to give people a few of their freedoms back starting today.

Except in northern Manitoba, where COVID-19 cases remain high, a home can now designate two visitors. Outdoor visits on private property can be five people plus your household.

There’s no longer an essential items list and all retail stores can open at 25 per cent capacity. This includes barber shops and hair salons.

Non-regulated health services, like pedorthists and reflexologists, can see patients.

Funerals are allowed to be held with 10 people plus the officiant.
