Restoring Safe Services
Restoring Safe Services Together: Manitoba’s Phased Approach
Steps taken in the first phase of Manitoba’s response to COVID-19 pandemic were made in reaction to the public health emergency. This included introducing increasingly restrictive measures to reduce the spread of the disease. We are now in a position to ease some restrictions and support economic recovery by taking measures to restore some services. Going forward, we will make evidence-based decisions to ease public health measures and introduce processes and services that address our new normal.
As more information becomes available and data on the current situation in Manitoba is analyzed, some measures may need to be reintroduced or new restrictions implemented to reduce any further spread of the virus. The timing and order of any actions taken may change throughout the process, based on modelling, testing, public health surveillance and public health advice. Each phase will require a period of a minimum three to four weeks to observe the results of the previous phase, and to make determinations about acceptable next steps.
