MANITOBA 4-3-2-ONE GREAT SUMMER' REOPENING PATH
The Manitoba government has launched its safe summer reopening path with more openings and fewer restrictions for Manitobans beginning by Canada Day.
The 4-3-2-One Great Summer Reopening Path sets out a clear path for more openings and fewer restrictions as vaccination levels rise over the course of the summer. It focuses on the four reopening categories, three summer holiday milestones for phasing out COVID-19 restrictions, and the two public health responsibilities Manitobans must continue to follow to ensure the province can reopen and stay open.
• four reopening categories – gathering and socializing, travel and tourism, shopping and services, and dining out and entertainment;
• three holiday milestones – Canada Day, August Long Weekend, and Labour Day; and
• two public health responsibilities – getting vaccinated and following public health orders that lower the risk of COVID-19.
Each holiday milestone for reopening will have a one-dose and two-dose immunization goal to guide progress in keeping Manitobans safe.
The immunization targets are:
• over 70 per cent of all Manitobans aged 12 and over have received their first dose and over 25 per have received their second dose by Canada Day;
• 75 per cent or greater of all Manitobans aged 12 and over have received their first dose and over 50 per have received their second dose by the August long weekend; and
• 80 per cent or greater of all Manitobans aged 12 and over have received their first dose and over 75 per have received their second dose by Labour Day.
Reopening activity levels will be tied to the first and second dose immunization targets including:
• meeting vaccine targets by Canada Day means businesses, services and facilities can open at
25 per cent capacity or greater levels;
• meeting vaccine targets by the August long weekend means businesses, services and facilities can open at 50 per cent capacity or greater levels; and
• meeting vaccine targets by Labour Day means businesses, services and facilities can open with limited restrictions.
The plan doesn’t specify exactly which businesses, services, and facilities will be allowed to open as targets are hit, something Dr. Roussin said was done intentionally to allow for “flexibility” in the plan.
