On March 15, the Province of Manitoba lifted the remaining public health orders and moved Manitoba into the Green or “Limited Risk” level of the Provincial Response System.
Additionally, on March 15:
- -public health orders restricting travel to northern Manitoba will end;
- -individual case investigations related to COVID-19 will no longer occur and Manitoba will no longer generate key codes for the federal COVID Alert app; and
- -public health will no longer require people who test positive for COVID-19 to isolate.
Public health continues to recommend people isolate in the following situations:
- -people with symptoms should stay home and isolate for five days after symptoms start until they have no fever and other symptoms have improved over the past 24 hours;
- -individuals who have tested positive but do not develop symptoms should isolate for five days from the date of the test;
- -individuals should wear a well-fitting, well-made mask if they must have contact with other people while ill or when their isolation is finished for 10 days after the onset of symptoms or test date if asymptomatic.
To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, it is recommended Manitobans get vaccinated, stay home when sick, assess their risk and make decisions about using masks, physical distancing and other actions based on those risks. The MHBA recommends that all members continue to implement these fundamental measures, whether in your offices, showrooms, worksites or show homes.
The MHBA will continue to provide members with updates from the Province of Manitoba on any additional changes to public health orders as they are announced.
