Manitoba moving back to Code Orange for first time in seven months

WINNIPEG — For the first time since mid-November, Manitoba will not be in Code Red on the pandemic response system.

Dr. Jazz Atwal, the deputy chief provincial public health officer, announced that when the new round of restrictions takes effect on Saturday, the province will also switch to Code Orange or the restricted level.

“Manitobans need to continue to follow the fundamentals, including indoor mask use and physical distancing,” said Atwal.

The province has been in Code Red since November 12, 2020.

This is a developing story. More details to come.
