Manitoba Government announced Phase 2 about sports with some changes


Manitoba Government has announced related to Phase 2 with some change for sport related. Here is the full information about it. The ASL Vlog will be coming soon to explain about this:

Sports may resume some activities.

Players, coaches, managers, training staff and medical personnel employed by or affiliated with a professional sports team may attend at the team's facilities for the purposes of training and practising, provided that no members of the public are permitted to enter those facilities.

These organized activities can resume as long as precautions are taken, such as physical distancing and enhanced cleaning of equipment and indoor spaces. Each sports organization and/or facility must establish a plan for how to minimize physical contact between participants. Outdoor activities are lower risk for transmission of COVID-19 than indoor activities. Guidance on performing a risk assessment for different sports and establishing plans will be posted online as soon as possible.

All activities will require some modification from their usual operations; however, individual or group activities that have close prolonged face-to-face contact (e.g. boxing, football) are higher risk, and will require some modification of the sport or activity to minimize this type of contact.

These activities, including those with temporary foreign professional players and teams travelling to northern communities, must adhere to travel restrictions.

The following guidelines should be followed.

  • Continue to offer virtual instruction or training where possible.
  • Individuals must use the self-screening tool before reporting to work, and should stay home when ill.
  • Individuals must be screened for symptoms prior to participation each day of the activity, and are not allowed to participate if they are ill with COVID-19 symptoms.
  • If indoors, hand hygiene stations should be placed at the entrance and strategically throughout the facility.
  • Shared equipment must be cleaned frequently. This can be done by participants, but staff should ensure this is being done regularly.
  • Individuals are given information on social distancing. Indoor facilities must post signs indicating physical distancing guidelines.
  • Ensure enhanced cleaning of indoor facilities, particularly washrooms.
  • Encouraging individuals to shower at home and limit use of locker area.
  • Removing any common use items from locker rooms.
  • Posting signage for guidance on shower area use to maintain physical distancing.
  • If locker rooms are used, consider modifying their use in order to maintain physical distancing.
  • As well, a disinfectant spray or wipes should be available for participants to disinfect locker contact surfaces before and after use.
  • Enhanced and frequent cleaning and disinfection of locker rooms will be required.
  • Areas of congregation (e.g. team benches, pool edges) will require creative solutions to adhere to physical distancing guidelines. This can be done in consultation with provincial and national sport-specific COVID-19 guidance, where applicable.

Important message from Boston Pizza Chairman Jim Treliving

To all our Guests,

To say the last few weeks have been unusually trying and unsettling for everyone is an understatement. However, to watch how Canadians have risen to the challenge makes me deeply proud. Whether it’s families staying safely at home, or our brave front line healthcare workers putting their own safety on the line to aid those most directly impacted by this horrid virus, or the service workers continuing to ensure mail is delivered, grocery store shelves are stocked and pharmacies remain open – it’s all truly impressive.

As far as Boston Pizza is concerned, when our first location opened in Edmonton 56 years ago, it was to serve food that would bring people together. And although this isn’t possible in the way we’re used to right now, we owe it to our communities to do everything we can to keep spirits up and our Boston Pizza values alive. I want to give you, our loyal guests, an update on how we’re managing and working to help families ‘Gather Round’ at home during this unforeseen time. 

I’d like to personally thank our incredible employees that are going above and beyond, working tirelessly in our kitchens, delivering food to Canadians at home and on the frontlines. I’m beyond grateful.  And I’m proud to share how our Franchisees are supporting and caring for the local communities they call home. Like our friends in Orangeville who donated dinner to the Orangeville hospital frontline workers. Or our friends out West who helped feed the Vancouver Police Department out in the field. And a group of Boston Pizza’s in Edmonton that organized food deliveries to those in need in shelters across the city. And our Boston Pizza Foundation also helps fund the much needed work of our National Charity partners right now – Kids Help Phone, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Live Different, and The Rick Hansen Foundation.  Amazingly, these are just a few examples in a long list of community support and kindness efforts coming from Boston Pizza right now. It reminds me why we strive every day as a proudly Canadian company to be an integral part of local communities all across the country.

To our suppliers – we couldn’t operate without the help of our partners that keep our restaurants stocked and in business, currently under very challenging conditions.  Their names don’t appear on our restaurants or in our advertising, but we’re so thankful for them nonetheless.

Finally, I miss the entire Boston Pizza family. Dearly. And of course you - our guests. You’re all a part of the family. For now, my wife Sandi and I are focusing our time with the Trelivings at home, and encourage everyone to do the same with their loved ones. Reach out and stay in touch with each other. And I look forward to the day when we’re brought together by food, once again.

Thanks, and stay safe,


Jim Treliving

Province of Manitoba Media Bulletin- COVID 19 Bulletin #50

Media Bulletin - Manitoba

Public health officials advise four new cases of COVID-19 have been identified as of 9:30 a.m., bringing the total number of lab-confirmed positive and probable positive cases in Manitoba to 246.  

The data also shows:
•    eight individuals are currently hospitalized, which includes four individuals in intensive care;
•    99 individuals have recovered from COVID-19; and
•    the total number of deaths reported in Manitoba is four.

Cadham Provincial Laboratory performed 32 tests Sunday. A total of 17,245 tests have been performed since early February.

The chief provincial public health officer will be extending the public health orders issued on March 30 for two weeks. The orders that were to expire on April 14 are now extended to April 28, 2020, with the following measures remaining in effect:
•    Public gatherings are limited to no more than 10 people at any indoor or outdoor place or premises. This includes places of worship, gatherings and family events such as weddings and funerals. This does not apply to a facility where health-care or social services are provided including child-care centres and homeless shelters.
•    All restaurants and other commercial facilities that serve food are prohibited from serving food to customers in their premises. This prevents eat-in dining at all facilities. However, restaurants and other commercial facilities can prepare and serve food for delivery or takeout. If this takes place, the operator of the restaurant must ensure that all people maintain the appropriate social distancing from other customers when picking up food.
•    All businesses that are not listed in the schedule of critical services that accompanies the order must remain closed.
-    This closure order does not prevent these businesses from operating on a remote basis.
-    A business may accept orders on the Internet, or over the phone for delivery or pickup, as long as the employees are not working at the place of business.
-    The order does not prevent employees or others from coming into the business to perform repairs, to provide security services or to take out items from the business premises if the business is going to operate on a remote basis.
-    Nothing in the order restricts the operations of delivery of services by the federal or provincial governments or a municipality.
-    Nothing in the order restricts any activities of a publicly funded agency, organization or authority that delivers or supports government operations or services, including health-care services. This means the order does not affect institutions, agencies and other service providers who provide health-care services such as hospitals, regional health authorities and private agencies who provide a range of health services.

Manitobans should not interpret current case numbers to mean the risk of COVID-19 is reduced. The current statistics may be a reflection of the effect strict social distancing measures have had and reaffirms that these measures must be continued. Manitobans are reminded this is not the time to let their guard down.

Any person concerned about their exposure to or risk of having COVID-19 should call Health Links–Info Santé at 204-788-8200 or (toll-free) at 1-888-315-9257 to be screened to see if a test is required.

The community testing site in Brandon is moving to a new drive-thru location. Starting Tuesday afternoon, the site will be located at the Brandon Town Centre, 800 Rosser Ave., enter from Eighth Street on the P1 level of the centre’s parkade. Regular hours for the relocated Brandon site will resume Wednesday, operating daily from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

For up-to-date information on community screening sites, visit

There have been reports of multiple phishing scams and fraud related to COVID-19. Manitobans are advised not to provide any financial data, hang up on the caller and to report the call to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at (toll-free) 1-888-495-8501.
