With two new cases and only six active cases of COVID-19 in the province Premier Brian Pallister says Phase Three of Restore Safe Services will go ahead Sunday. He outlined some changes from the original draft plan including removing the maximum capacity of 300 people at any site provided the gathering can be physically divided into sub-groups of 50 or fewer or 100 or fewer outdoors to a maximum of 30 percent of usual capacity, allowing people from British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut and people living in northwestern Ontario west of Terrace Bay to visit Manitoba without having to self isolate for 14 days and ensuring those travelling to northern Manitoba continue to respect any restrictions that have been put in place there.

Meanwhile as Saskatchewan moves forward with their Re-open Saskatchewan plan nine new cases of COVID-19 were reported with seven in the Far North Region. Details on their plan can be found at www.saskatchewan.ca/re-open.
