The COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak continues to evolve rapidly worldwide, with more countries reporting cases and an overall increase in case numbers.

Public health officials continue to recommend these social distancing measures for all Manitobans:
• minimizing prolonged (more than 10 minutes), close (less than two metres) contact between individuals in public;
• avoiding greetings that involve touching such as handshakes;
• disinfecting frequently used surfaces;
• following public health advice related to self-monitoring and self-isolation if you have travelled or have been exposed to someone ill with the virus; and
• avoiding all non-essential travel, as well as crowded places and events.

In addition, all training offered by the Families Training Unit are cancelled effective immediately until further notice.
