Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) bulletin #17

The Manitoba government is taking additional proactive measures to help reduce the impact of COVID-19.  This includes:

  • suspending services at licensed child-care centres, effective end-of-day Friday, March 20;
  • recommending parents with children in these centres begin to make alternate arrangements as soon as possible, even though centres will remain open for the remainder of the week;
  • continuing to allow home-based child-care providers to operate; and
  • creating dedicated child-care options for front-line and essential services staff who need them.

Parents who will be providing front-line health care or are a member of a fire, police or paramedic service and will not be able to find alternative child care while services are suspended are asked to contact 204-945-0776 or 1-888-213-4754 (toll-free).
