The Manitoba government is expected to make an announcement this morning regarding the relaxation of some COVID restrictions.

Premier Brian Pallister will be joined by chief provincial public health officer Dr. Brent Roussin for an 11 a.m. press conference.

It’s expected the pair will confirm which public health orders will be relaxed when the orders are updated this Friday.

Some of the possible changes floated by the province last week include increasing capacity limits at restaurants, retail stores, and churches.

Also up for consideration is expanding outdoor gathering sizes to 10 people, allowing Manitobans to “bubble up” with another household, and relaxing some restrictions for recreation and fitness facilities.

Stay tuned to 730 CKDM and for all the important updates from today’s announcement.
