Manitobans will get more information on the second phase of reopening today.
Premier Brian Pallister and Chief Provincial Public Health Officer, Dr. Brent Roussin are set to make an announcement on Manitoba’s 4-3-2-One Great Summer reopening plan, at a conference at 2 p.m. today.
The conference comes after the province met the vaccination target needed for phase two last week.
Under the reopening plan, if 75 percent of eligible Manitobans receive their first dose and 50 percent receive their second dose by the August long weekend, the province can enter the next phase of reopening, which could see businesses open at 50 percent capacity or more.
Right now, 76.5 percent of eligible Manitobans are at least partially vaccinated, and 57.8 percent are fully vaccinated.
