After 580 days the provincewide state of emergency under the Emergency Measures Act will expire today. The state of emergency allowed for a number of emergency orders to be made that were beyond the scope of the Public Health Act.

However, Premier Kelvin Goertzen would like to remind everyone that although the state of emergency is expiring, COVID-19 is still here and it’s important that all Manitobans continue to follow the fundamentals that help us limit our risks

The state of emergency was first declared on March 20, 2020, by the powers set out in section 10(1) and 10(2) of the Emergency Measures Act and will expire at 4 p.m. today, Oct. 21.

Public health orders can continue to be issued through the Public Health Act without a declared provincewide state of emergency. The province can declare a new state of emergency if required in the future.

Public health orders are still in effect, and Manitobans are encouraged to continue to follow public health guidelines around the use of masks and vaccinations to lessen the impact of a fourth wave.
