Manitoba announces additional COVID-19 measures for schools | LIVE

Manitoba is expected to announce additional COVID-19 measures for schools on Sunday, according to the government.

Chief medical officer of health Dr. Brent Roussin and Education Minister Cliff Cullen will make the announcement.

It comes just two days after the province announced it would be tightening public health orders to curb the spread of COVID-19 amid surging case numbers.

Roussin said Friday the changes would go into effect at midnight on Sunday and last until at least May 30.

Under the new rules restaurants, bars, and patios will be closed to in-person dining, and gyms, fitness centres, museums, libraries, and day camps will also will be forced to close. Outdoor gatherings that include people from multiple households will be limited to a maximum of five people.

Roussin said restaurants will still be able to provide take-out and delivery under the new rules.

Further changes will see indoor community, cultural and religious gatherings prohibited and personal services such as estheticians, barbers, salons and tanning salons closed.

Retail stores, markets and garden centres will be allowed to remain open, but at 10 per cent capacity, or 100 people, whichever is lower. Malls can stay open with capacity capped at 10 per cent.

Dance, theatre, and music schools, though, will have to close under the new orders, and Roussin said outdoor sports and recreation activities will have a maximum of five participants and organized team games will not be permitted.

Health officials reported 488 new COVID-19 cases and three deaths in Manitoba on Saturday, including a woman in her 20s and man in his 70s both from Winnipeg, and a man in his 80s from Prairie Mountain Health region. The province’s death toll sits at 990.
