The Manitoba government is expanding its current public health orders to allow outdoor public gatherings of up to five people on both public and private property starting Saturday.

Dr. Brent Roussin says no more than two households will be able to gather together on private property.

“Although the public health orders will allow for some small public gatherings, people are reminded to minimize the number of contacts they have outside of their households."

Schools in Dauphin are set to continue online learning until June 21st, and Winnipeg and Brandon schools will continue until the end of the school year.

Roussin says that the heat-related amendments from last week will stay in place, but are only to be used as needed.
