Friday, June 25, 2021 – This week, the Province of Manitoba announced that as of 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, June 26, the following changes to public health orders will be in place until August 2:
Outdoor organized sports and recreation activities may reopen for groups up to 25 people, with no tournaments allowed.
We received clarification that the group of 25 includes all participants. In addition to the group of 25 participants, you are allowed up to 25 spectators, physically distanced by at least 2 metres, as per the outdoor gathering size limit for public spaces.
Indoor organized sport and recreation activities may reopen to groups of no more than 5 athletes plus coaches/instructors. The five-athlete plus coach/instructor groups cannot intermingle. No tournaments are allowed. Dressing rooms are limited to 50% of the usual capacity or to a number that ensures that all persons in the dressing room are able to maintain a separation of at least two metres from other persons, whichever is lesser. Masks are required at all times for indoor settings.
Example: a playing surface could have multiple groups of 5, as long as they do not mix
Swimming and wading pools, both indoor and outdoor, may reopen at 25 per cent capacity.
Gyms and fitness facilities may reopen at 25 per cent capacity with three metres distance maintained between patrons
Individual and group fitness classes are allowed
Changerooms may open to 50% capacity, including showers
Masks are required at all times for indoors settings
Day camps may reopen with a maximum of 20 participants per group
There are currently no age restrictions connected with this order but the intention around allowing camps came from a child care perspective, and we ask all sports to use their best judgement with regards to what truly is a day camp.
All the return to play protocols you’ve established and general covid prevention measures must continue to be followed.
