    As the designated visitor for a person icing alone, are we allowed to camp together?

    Elaine Bradley asked 10 days ago

    Thank you for your question.

    Campgrounds are allowed to operate at this time. 

    Individual campsites are considered private residences and must therefore follow the restrictions on gatherings at private residences. At this time, you may only be at a campsite with people who are allowed to visit you at your own residence or whose residence you are allowed to visit.

    Visitors are expected to follow all applicable Public Health Orders, including both indoor and outdoor gathering limits. Please consult Manitoba Conservation & Climate’s COVID-19 Information for Park Visitors for more details.

    My question is about camping. I understand that your camper is like your residence and therefore the current restrictions apply to the camper as it does to your home and outside space. But what about up to 10 not-all-from- the- same household campers gathering in a public place at the private or provincial park to play lawn darts and socialize? Or have a hot dog roast in a large area with the ability to distance? Does that contravene restrictions? I know up to 10 non related individuals can gather in public spaces but does this apply to campers away from their campsites? Thank you. Trudy

    If a person has had the first vaccine at a pop up (ie Swan River), if dosages are not used up at upcoming dates, is a person automatically notified to have their second dose?

    Linz1 asked 11 days ago

    Thank you for your question.

    Manitoba Health and Seniors Care will be making arrangements to contact you directly when it is time to schedule the appointment for your second dose of vaccine. That is why you are asked to provide up-to-date contact information and sign section D, Consent for Use and Disclosure of Contact Information, on your consent form when you attend the appointment for your first dose.
