COVID-19 BULLETIN #262

Province of Manitoba Media Bulletin


November 21, 2020


The province continues to work to protect Manitobans while at the same time allowing people to access essential items. Public health orders first issued on Nov. 19 have been updated with small changes to the items considered essential.


Modifications will take effect at 12:01 a.m. on Nov. 22 and will add gift cards, prepaid credit cards and newspapers to the list of essential items.


The amendments also add five remote communities, including Sapotaweyak, Berens River, Poplar River, Little Grand Rapids and Pauingassi, where non-essential items can be sold to in-person shoppers. This exemption also applies throughout northern Manitoba, except in Thompson, Flin Flon and The Pas.


The orders and the list of items deemed essential will be posted on the province’s #Restart MB Pandemic Response System at www.manitoba.ca/covid19/restartmb/prs/orders/index.html#current.
