Manitoba Government making progress to facilitate visits at personal care homes
Province Awards Tender for Development of Outdoor, All-Season Visitation Shelters: Friesen and Helwer
The Manitoba government has awarded a construction tender to Manitoba-based PCL Constructors Canada Inc. for the development and construction of all-season shelters at personal care homes (PCH) to allow residents to safely visit with loved ones, Health, Seniors and Active Living Minister Cameron Friesen and Central Services Minister Reg Helwer announced today.
“Our government recognized the suspension of visiting privileges at care homes due to COVID-19 put a tremendous strain on families,” said Friesen. “While we acted quickly to restore visits in the spring, it was clear that a more comprehensive strategy would be necessary to facilitate visits with the approaching influenza season and the potential for of a second wave of COVID-19.”
