Premier Brian Pallister alongside Manitoba’s Chief Provincial Public Health Officer, Dr. Brent Roussin announced the province's next phase in Manitoba’s 4-3-2-One Great Summer reopening plan this afternoon.
Premier Brian Pallister spoke of today as, “A good news day, towards a reopened Manitoba.”
“Last week Manitobans met and surpassed vaccinations goals we had set out for our second reopening milestone. This I should note was almost a full month ahead of schedule. So good for Manitobans, thanks for doing that.”
Some of the changes that the officials announced today include:
-Indoor gatherings at private residences are permitted to a maximum of 5 people in addition to household.
-Fully vaccinated Manitobans will now have the chance to go see a movie theatre or visit a museum.
-Gym and fitness centres will now be able to have 50% capacity, masks must be worn at all times and social distancing rules are still in effect.
-Sports and recreation can now have groups of 5 indoors and groups of 25 outdoors with no tournaments allowed.
-Faith based and cultural gatherings are up to 50% or 150 people and drive-in services continue to be permitted without restriction.
-The August 5th Winnipeg Blue Bomber game has been approved to have 100% capacity with full vaccinated fans in the stands.
The province's third and final goal in the reopening plan is to have 80 percent of eligible Manitobans with at least one vaccine dose and 75 percent with two doses by Sept. 6.
All changes will go into effect at 12:01 A.M. on Saturday, July 17.
