Stay Safe

Manitobans have been tackling the challenge of COVID-19 for over a year now. We know the past year has been difficult. We’ve all had to adjust to the new normal to help keep ourselves and our loved ones safe. We’ve not seen our friends and family as much we want to. We’ve all missed out on activities and events that used to bring us together. It’s important to recognize what we’re feeling, and it’s also important to know that our collective effort has helped keep people safe and helped our health care workers by keeping case counts lower.
With thousands of people being vaccinated daily, we know that we have reason for optimism. It’s important to continue to do a bit more of what’s been working for a little longer. That means keeping contacts to a minimum and staying home as much a possible and when we enjoy our fabulous Manitoba summer outside, that we do that safely as well. With a last push of us all working together, we’ll be able to get through this.

Stay safe, focus on the fundamentals

You can reduce your risk and help prevent the spread of COVID-19 by adopting these fundamental habits:

  • 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 or sneeze.
  • Maintain social (physical) distancing.
  • Wear a mask when social (physical) distancing is not possible.
  • When enjoying the outdoors with groups from outside your household distance and wear a mask when distancing is not possible.



Manitoba public health officials have also 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.

Mental health

We all feel stressed or anxious from time to time, and these feelings may be amplified by the COVID-19 pandemic. You may be experiencing:

  • Fear of getting sick with COVID-19 or of making others sick.
  • Worry about finances or shopping safely for essential items.
  • Conflict with family or friends over differences in risk comfort levels.
  • Sadness about being isolated from loved ones.


Take care of your mental health. Start preparing now for how your emotions may affect you later. It’s normal to have feelings of sadness or disappointment about your change in routine, your finances or your social life.

Under the current conditions, it’s okay to avoid contact with others outside your household to protect yourself, your family and your community.

If you live alone, consider holding a virtual gathering with friends, family or another household. You may also visit with one person with whom you regularly interact at your home or theirs.

The outdoors has been a refuge for many during the pandemic. Canadians have been getting outside for exercise and lower-risk socializing with masks and social distancing. Dress well, follow gathering size limits and other public health measures, and the outdoors can be an excellent way to improve your mental health and well-being all winter long.
