Out-of-province travellers required to self-isolate for 14 days in Manitoba

THE CANADIAN PRESS | posted Friday, Jan 29th, 2021

New travel restrictions requiring anyone who enters Manitoba to self-isolate for 14 days start today.

Since last June, only travellers arriving from areas east of Terrace Bay in northern Ontario had been subject to the requirement.

All out-of-province arrivals are now covered by the public-health measure.

Premier Brian Pallister has said the move is needed because of the growing spread of novel coronavirus variants and delays in vaccine supplies.

There are exceptions for people travelling for essential work and medical care, and for residents of border communities who cross into Saskatchewan or Ontario for necessities.

Dr. Jazz Atwal, acting chief health officer, says Manitobans who were outside the province before the new order came into effect will be exempt from quarantining.
