The Manitoba government will be establishing five highway checkpoints to provide information to travellers during the COVID-19 outbreak.
No one will be denied entry into Manitoba, but travellers will receive information about Manitoba’s current state of emergency and the need to immediately self-isolate for 14 days after travel within Canada or internationally.
This recommendation does not include:
• the commercial transportation of goods;
• workers who live in a neighbouring jurisdiction and travel to Manitoba for work;
• health care workers who travel to work from outside the province; and
• normal personal travel in border communities including visits to a cottage.
Where checkpoints will be located:
• Ontario border:
- Trans-Canada Highway East (West Hawk Lake/Falcon Lake);
• Saskatchewan border:
- Trans-Canada Highway West (west of Kirkella/Elkhorn/Virden);
- PTH 16 (west of Russell);
- PTH 5W (west of Roblin); and
- PTH 2 (west of Sinclair/Reston/Souris).
Checkpoints are expected to begin operation this week.
