The Government of Manitoba recently introduced a four-tier colour-coded “Pandemic Response System” that allows public health officials to modify COVID-19-related restrictions in particular parts of the Province. The system gives the Provincial Government the ability to enact different restrictions on various locations in the Archdiocese of Winnipeg. Details on public health guidelines can be found on www.gov.mb.ca/covid19/.
