No additional public health measures coming to Manitoba on Monday

WINNIPEG — Manitoba’s top doctor will not be announcing additional public health measures on Monday afternoon, according to the province.

The Manitoba government initially announced that Dr. Brent Roussin, chief provincial public health officer, would be announcing the new measures at a news conference, but have since said it was an error.

Roussin will be providing a regular COVID-19 case update at 12;30 p.m. at the Manitoba Legislative Building.

CTV News Winnipeg will live-stream the event.

Last week, the province implemented new public health orders to help slow the spread of COVID-19 in Manitoba.

These new restrictions included not allowing visitors at people’s homes, either indoors or outdoors; limiting capacity at faith-based gatherings, as well as at other businesses; and limiting spectators at outdoor sports and recreation facilities.

These restrictions came into effect on April 28 and are set to be in place for four weeks.

This is a developing story. More details to come.
