Warm weather doesn’t mean you can walk close together

Warm weather doesn’t mean you can walk close together


 
Residents are reminded that just because it’s nice outside doesn’t mean you can stop social distancing.

The warm weather we experienced over the weekend is expected to last to mid-week, and that means more people will be outside, but it definitely doesn’t mean you can ignore the guidelines of social distancing.  

The Province of Manitoba has put guidelines in place for social distancing, which include staying two metres away from the nearest person.  

The RM has received concerns from residents that over the weekend people were outside and ignoring the two-metre suggestion.  COVID-19 can strike anyone, of any age, and close contact contributes to spreading the disease. It may not be fatal to you, but you could spread it to another person for whom it could be fatal.  For these reasons, the Province is recommending that those who do go out adhere to social distancing.  

Under the Public Health Act, the following measures are now in place – public gatherings are limited to no more than 10 people at any indoor or outdoor place, including places of worship, gatherings and family events such as weddings and funerals. 

The Province has also said the best way to stop the spread of COVID-19 is to stay at home. If you are able to, please do.
