    I presume that going outside for a walk and social distancing with 5 people or less is permitted. ie people from different households come in different vehicles. Also, I presume that wearing a mask in this situation is probably recommended although risks should be minimal. Please comment / clarify.

    Outdoor recreational activities such as cross-country skiing, running and snowmobiling may take place while these Orders are in effect, as long as all participants maintain a separation of at least two metres from each other.

    Dell asked 5 days ago

    Thank you for your question. While fitness facilities must be closed at this time, staff can attend the business to facilitate virtual or online training programs. The intent of the public health order is to allow staff on premise to facilitate the sale of goods or services ordered online or by telephone, enable curbside pick up and delivery of goods and accept delivery of goods and allowable services such as construction, repairs, maintenance and cleaning to occur at their premises and on their property.

    We are a fitness retail store and understand we can do curbside pick or delivery. We deliver large items such as treadmills that most customer can not lift themselves. Are we able to deliver the item into the customers home?

    Renee Ma asked 5 days ago

    Fitness retailers can continue to sell essential or non-essential items online, by telephone or by remote means for delivery or curb-side pick-up. Retailers must also implement measures to ensure physical distancing if they are delivering directly into customers' homes.

    For child care. When parents do not live in the same household but the custody agreement states the child is to go to the father's place on the weekend. Is this still allowed?

    Linda1967 asked 5 days ago

    Hi there. Yes, this is allowed. The orders do not restrict a visit between a child and a parent or guardian who does not normally reside with that child.

    Why are florist shops allowed to be open

    Bjorg asked 6 days ago

    A retail business may open but sell only essential items in person. Flowers are non-essential items and cannot be sold in person at this time. Retailers must ensure compliance with capacity limits -- either 25 per cent of the usual capacity of the premise or 250 people -- whichever is lower.

    Retailers must also implement measures to ensure physical distancing. Retailers can continue to sell essential or non-essential items online, by telephone or by remote means for delivery or curb-side pick-up. A list of essential items for retail sale can be viewed at: https://manitoba.ca/covid19/restartmb/prs/orders/essential-retail.html
