The draft plan for restoring services in Phase Two released May 21 builds on measures from Restoring Safe Services: Manitoba’s Pandemic and Economic Roadmap for Recovery, which set out an evidence-based plan to ease public health measures that had escalated since mid-January. As of May 22, gathering size limits were increased to 25 people indoor and 50 outdoor, while professional sports teams were allowed to return to their training facilities, as long as precautions were taken and the public is not allowed into those facilities.
Detailed information on the draft plan for Phase Two of service restoration can be found at www.manitoba.ca/covid19/restoring/index.html.
