Manitoba Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Brent Roussin announced updates to COVID-19 restrictions this afternoon but not for us. He explains the new orders would apply to Winnipeg, Southern health, Interlake Eastern and Prairie Mountain regions however because of the current case counts and test positivity in the north and many First Nations they’re going to not have this loosening of the restrictions apply to the north including Churchill.
The main change from the proposals presented earlier this week is the two family or friends allowed to visit your household have to be two designated people only. The new orders come into effect Saturday and run until February 12th. Other changes allow for the elimination of the essentials list in stores with 25 percent occupancy and barber shops and hair stylists can open also at 25 percent occupancy.
