Starting Friday, September 18, the Prairie Mountain Health region will be lowered to the COVID-19 yellow caution level, according to the #RestartMB Pandemic Response System. This is in response to an improved situation in the region.
Masks will still be strongly recommended in public places, but not required. Public gatherings will be bumped back up to 50 people indoors and 100 people outdoors, the same as the rest of the province. Public health officials continue to monitor all the regions with increased cases closely to determine if additional restrictions are necessary.
The province had elevated PMH to code orange on August 24 after a rash of cases in the area.
