Some Restrictions Including Masks Indoors Eased as COVID-19 Case Counts Drop in Western Manitoba

The Manitoba government says it’s going to ease restrictions in the western part of the province, where COVID-19 case numbers are dropping.

Starting Friday, people in the Prairie Mountain health region will no longer be required to wear masks in indoor public places and at outdoor gatherings.

Public gatherings in the region will no also longer be limited to 10 people, but will be in line with the rest of the province with caps at 50 people indoors and 100 outside.

Tighter restrictions were put in place last month, when active cases in the region were more than 200.

That number has dropped to 38.

Health officials are reporting 11 new COVID-19 cases, eight of which are in Winnipeg.
