The Manitoba government continues to take actions against those who violate public health orders and reminds Manitobans that enforcement officials will be out in full force this weekend.
Enforcement officials are aware of and will be present at upcoming rallies planned for communities across Manitoba that are in violation of the current public health orders. Officials also note that they have reached out to rally organizers to communicate gathering size requirements and to reinforce 14-day self-isolation periods for any participants coming into Manitoba.
Manitobans are reminded that should they choose to attend these rallies, they should be aware that they will be monitored, and that enforcement officials will be present to conduct surveillance and gather video and other evidence that will be used to lay charges. Investigations into several recent large gatherings and rallies continue, and additional charges are expected.
Manitobans are advised that conservation and park patrol officers will enforce public health and state-of-emergency orders within provincial parks. Enforcement officers will also be present at shopping centres and Manitobans are reminded that only one person per household will be allowed to enter a business.
The best way to protect yourself and your loved ones is to stay home when possible, limit your contacts, wear a mask and maintain physical distancing when in public.
Manitobans can report compliance and enforcement issues by visiting manitoba.ca and completing the reporting form, or by calling 204-945-3744 or (toll-free) 1-866-626-4862 and pressing option three on the call menu.
