Manitoba provides update on next phase of COVID-19 reopening plan | LIVE

CA, 15 Jul 2021
Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister and the chief provincial public health officer, Dr. Brent Roussin, are expected to reveal details on Wednesday about the next phase of COVID-19 reopening.

Under a reopening plan announced last month, health officials said they would look at gradually loosening restrictions if certain vaccination milestones were met over the summer, provided daily case numbers and hospitalization rates had also fallen.

The province loosened some restrictions late last month after hitting the first milestone— 70 per cent of Manitobans aged 12 and up receiving their first dose and 25 per cent receiving their second— before the July 1 target.

The second milestone — 75 per cent of eligible Manitobans receiving their first dose and 50 per cent receiving thier second —was also met ahead of the targeted August long weekend.

Last week Pallister said word on what a further loosening of restrictions would look like would come this week.
