Dear Families,

As you may know, the Province of Manitoba announced new Public Health Orders which will come into effect August 7.

It is important to note the following:

  • the current requirement for personal protective equipment to be worn while in Manitoba’s health care facilities remains.

We know that mask wearing and eye protection are one of the most effective means of preventing COVID-19 transmission and will be required in Personal Care Homes and Supportive Housing for the foreseeable future.

Actionmarguerite will continue to provide families and visitors with medical masks and eye protection as long as they are required.

We thank you for your continued understanding and collaboration in our efforts to protect the people who need it most.
