The captain of the Winnipeg Jets is calling on Premier Brian Pallister to make masks mandatory in the province as Manitobans continue to fight COVID-19.
@BrianPallister time for universal mask mandate. Why not? Let’s take care of each other.— Blake Wheeler (@BiggieFunke) September 20, 2020
In the Prairie Mountain Health region, masks aren't mandatory. Certain companies do require mask-wearing; however, including Liquor Marts and Walmart, just to name a couple.
29 new cases of COVID were reported on Sunday while 40 were reported last Friday. Sandwiched in the middle were 18 cases on Saturday as the cases have surged in the province in the past week. 22 new cases and two additional deaths were reported on Monday.
