He noted there are still those who are not so there are going to be consequences explaining over the weekend the Manitoba government deployed a team of provincial employees province wide and they were dedicated to enforcing public health orders. He said that team had more than 225 interactions with a wide variety of businesses or organizations and individuals and in all 32 tickets were issued across Manitoba last week which is triple the previous week.
