Manitoba extends restrictions another three weeks as COVID numbers continue to rise

The Manitoba government is extending its current COVID-19 restrictions for three more weeks as the Omicron variant continues to spread.

The rules limit movie theatres, museums, professional sports arenas and many other venues to 50 per cent capacity or 250 people, whichever is lower, and everyone must be vaccinated.

There are also limits on gatherings in private homes - five guests if anyone is unvaccinated and 10 if everyone is immunized.

The orders were set to expire Tuesday, but will remain in place until Feb. 1.

The announcement came as the province announced another sharp increase in the number of COVID-19 hospitalizations.

There are 297 people with COVID-19 in hospitals, an increase of more than 10 per cent in one day.
