      NEW Last updated: May 5, 2020

      Zurrent State of Emergency and Public Health Orders
      The Manitoba government declared a province-wide state of emergency under The Emergency Measures Act on March 20, 2020, to protect the health and safety of all Manitobans and reduce the spread of Covid-19.

      The chief provincial public health officer issued new public health orders on April 30, 2020. The new orders will extend the mandate that anyone entering Manitoba, regardless of whether it was from another country or another province must self-isolate for 14 days until such time as the orders are terminated by the chief provincial public health officer.

      Exceptions to this requirement include:

      people who are transporting goods and materials into or through Manitoba, if they are not displaying any symptoms of COVID-19;
      people who provide vital services in Manitoba as specified in the order, such as health care providers, police officers, emergency services personnel, social service workers and workers engaged in the construction or maintenance of critical infrastructure, if they are not displaying any symptoms of COVID-19;
      people travelling into Manitoba to facilitate shared parenting arrangements under a custody order or agreement, including any child accompanying them, if they are not displaying any symptoms of COVID-19; and
      people travelling into Manitoba for emergency medical purposes.
      Please see the order for the complete list of exceptions.

      In addition, travel to northern Manitoba (north of the 53rd parallel of latitude) and to remote communities that are not connected to the provincial highway system by a year-round all-weather road is prohibited until the orders are terminated by the chief provincial public health officer. The orders will continue to provide for some exceptions to this prohibition:

      Federal or provincial government workers or people working for a provincial government agency or a child and family services authority may continue to travel to northern Manitoba and remote communities if required
      Health care providers may continue to travel to northern Manitoba and remote communities to provide health care services.
      People who live in northern and remote communities returning to their home communities or traveling in northern Manitoba
      The delivery of goods and services for vital businesses listed in the order may continue.
      People who travel to the north or remote communities for employment with a vital business listed in the schedule to the order, emergency medical treatment or to facilitate child custody agreements.
      Please see the order for a complete list of the exceptions.

      The new orders maintain the gathering size of no more than 10 people at any indoor or outdoor premises.

      The new orders will take effect on May 4, 2020 and provide for the implementation of Phase one of the plan to safely restore services in Manitoba as outlined in Restoring Safe Services: Manitoba’s Pandemic Economic Recovery Roadmap. This includes

      Subject to further direction form their regulatory bodies, removing the restrictions on the practice of regulated health professionals;
      Enabling massage therapy services and acupuncture services to resume;
      Permitting non-vital retail businesses to reopen such as clothing stores, shoe stores, toy stores and others;
      Permitting recreational campgrounds to open, and
      Enabling restaurants to serve food on patios in addition to providing food for delivery and take out.
      Please see the order for a complete list of the businesses that may reopen and the services that may resume and the conditions applicable to those businesses and services.
