Restoring Services: Phase 4
Last week, the Government of Manitoba announced Phase Four of Restoring Safe Services: Manitoba’s Pandemic and Economic Roadmap for Recovery, with most of the proposed changes coming in to effect on Saturday, July 25. Test positivity rates, case numbers, and the number of people attending emergency departments or urgent care facilities with flu-like symptoms remain low, so Phase 4 further eases public health measures put in place to address the pandemic. Here are Phase 4 highlights:
- Visitation to personal care homes: Each resident or designate can identify two support people who will simultaneously be able to visit the resident’s room indoors, for unlimited visitation time. In addition, residents/ designates may identify general visitors who wish to visit for social reasons. Although outdoor visits are preferred for general visitors, sites may consider some visits from general visitors in resident’s room if the resident is in a single room or required physical distancing can be maintained.
- Casinos: Opening casinos, with a maximum occupancy of 30 per cent of the site’s capacity (including staff).
- Movie theatres & stage performances: Reopening, at a capacity of 30 per cent of the site’s capacity or 500 people, whichever is lower. Sub-groups/cohorts are not required.
- There have also been some deferrals to proposed changes based on resounding feedback from Manitobans, including: public gathering group sizes have not changed from Phase 3; there are still travel restrictions from Southern Ontario, Quebec and the Atlantic provinces; and changes have not been enacted for bars/beverage room service.
