Focus on the Fundamentals
We can all reduce our risk by focusing on the following fundamentals and adopting the following habits to help prevent the spread of COVID-19
- Check yourself for symptoms every day
- Stay home when you are sick
- Get tested if you have symptoms of COVID-19
- Wash your hands or use alcohol based hand sanitizer frequently
- Cover your cough/sneeze
- Maintain social (physical) distancing
- Wear a mask when social (physical) distancing is not possible
It is also important to stay informed through accurate and credible sources. The province has developed the #RestartMB Pandemic Response System to share current information with Manitobans about risk, response and recommended actions.
In addition, Manitoba public health officials have issued public health orders to help reduce the risk and prevent the spread of COVID-19. Please visit the State of Emergency page to see how these orders affect you.
