As previously mentioned, and with the increase in reported cases in Manitoba, it is vital that we continue to be vigilant to prevent the spread of the virus by following the Health and Safety protocols: Focus on the fundamentals to reduce the risk of COVID-19

  • Wash your hands/or use an alcohol-based sanitizer
  • Cover your mouth & nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or into your sleeve
  • Stay home when sick
  • Stay 2m/6ft apart
  • Social Distancing
  • Or wear a mask when physical distancing is not possible
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth

Following these Protocols is very important to reduce the risk of transmission and for the health and safety of our families.
