Health-care facilities retain COVID precautions
Health-care facilities across Manitoba will continue to require people attending to adopt physical distancing and mask-wearing despite new public health orders brought into effect on August 7, 2021.

Because health-care facilities are where individuals at higher risk of severe illness are likely to be present, health-care facilities are requiring people attending for care or visiting patients or residents continue to wear masks, maintain physical distancing and use hand sanitizer. People are reminded if they are not feeling well, please refrain from visiting patients in hospital or residents in personal care homes.  

“In health care, our obligation remains to protect the health and safety of those we care for and to try to prevent COVID-19 outbreaks in hospitals, clinics, personal care homes and administrative offices,” says Dr. Karen Robinson, regional medical officer of health. “Everyone’s cooperation and adherence to these public health measures, as we continue to provide protection to people who are vulnerable to illness, is appreciated.”

Screeners are still present at entrances of health facilities and masks will continue to be required. Visiting restrictions are still in place at most facilities and vary depending on the patient, facility and vaccination status. Please contact the facility for more information.

All vaccination clinics are still considered health-care clinics where mask use is still mandatory.

If you have not yet been immunized, please make your appointment today.
