  • Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister and chief provincial public health officer Dr. Brent Roussin announced on Thursday the province’s COVID-19 reopening plan — called the "4, 3, 2, One Great Summer Reopening Path."

    The plan will be tied to COVID-19 vaccination targets, with businesses, services and facilities allowed to open at 25 per cent by Canada Day, provided 70 per cent of all Manitobans 12 and over have received their first shot, and 25 per cent have received their second shot.

    The openings increase to 50 per cent capacity, and gathering sizes limits will be again increased if the province hits 75 per cent first dose vaccination and 50 per cent second dose rates by the August long weekend.

    Finally, if 80 per cent of the eligible population has received one shot, and 75 per cent has received two shots by Labour Day, then the province will open businesses, services and facilities fully, with some restrictions.

    Manitoba will also be slightly loosening public health orders on June 12 to allow for outdoor gatherings, but restrictions on businesses will remain in place.
