STATEMENT FROM PREMIER BRIAN PALLISTER ON TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS



Due to concerns about COVID-19 variants now emerging and in order to provide additional clarity regarding public health orders, all Manitoba government Order-in-Council appointees, including those serving on agencies, boards, and commissions, may not travel for leisure purposes outside permitted travel areas, effective immediately. Should they do so, their appointment will be terminated.
 
After discussion with my office, Wayne McWhirter will be stepping down as chair of the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority.
