Manitoba Premier Heather Stefanson and chief public health officer Dr. Brent Roussin announced new COVID-19 restrictions on Monday amid a surge of cases in the province due to the Omicron variant. Roussin said starting Tuesday at 12:01 a.m. gatherings in public spaces must not exceed 50 per cent capacity or 250 people, whichever is less. Those under the new restrictions include restaurants, licenced premises, food courts, movie theatres, concert halls and performing art venues among others. Roussin added that all attendees need to be fully vaccinated or under the age of 12.
In addition, liquor sales in restaurants and licensed premises must end at 10 p.m. daily.
“Over the last week, case numbers have increased sharply, and we must again take steps to reduce the spread of the virus to help protect Manitoba’s health-care system,” said Stefanson. “As we approach the new year – a time that is usually filled with celebration – we are urging Manitobans to limit your close contacts at this crucial time in our fight against COVID-19.”
The public health orders are in place until at least January 11.
Last week, the province’s latest pandemic rules came into place, with private indoor gatherings having been limited to members of a household plus 10 people, if everyone 12 and older were vaccinated. Outdoor gatherings on private property also saw limits to the household plus 20 people imposed, with the limit reduced to 10 if not everyone 12 and older was fully vaccinated.

Remember when the vaxxed were gloating about their freedom. Yeah how's that working out.
I had the biggest gathering ever and will have another one tomorrow. These health officials are not here to protect me, and they are not my boss.
Never Trust anybody that looks like a turtle!
What a joke!
Oh look the two wizards with their wizardry 🤦
Roussin how about you be kind stop this ridiculous charade "Vaccines work"🤦😂I don't know but last time I checked you don't get a "Milder " version of something mild for most in the first place who have robust immune systems.Thats not how " VACCINES WORK"!
Omnicron has done more to reduce covid deaths than the vaccines
Why didn't the vaccines work?
Yes vaccines works. Unfortunately not very well for this type of virus. 3rd dose is callibrated for Omicron variant? How come that fully vaccinated are got sick in huge numbers? When this crazines will stop and Canadians will wake up?
Nobody cares and will do as they please. This is wannabe propaganda and it ain’t working
Just say no to the drugs and lockdowns
For thy merchants, we’re the great men of the world and through their sorceries ( pharmakeia) all nations were deceived.
The scamdemic continues. Be afraid, very afraid, this is the only way it will work. Oh Yeah I just about forgot, DON'T COMPLY !!!!
“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be "cured" against one's will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.” – CS Lewis
Because of the economic crisis and rate of unemployment, now is the best time to invest and make money💯
" All I hear is radio gaga" that being said have a great New Year's celebration with friends and family…Cheers! 🍹
Rights Before Fears
THIS IS NOT BASED ON SCIENCE! Where r the Independent Scientific Sources?! SUE! Discovery will be very interesting….MIT Study proved Social Distancing did nothing! Study after Study proves these vaccines useless and dangerous. Israel on their 5th Booster…they r lying stating they r going on 4th. See Israel Study, UK Study, Columbia Study….Standford Study + 72 Studies proved masks useless. WE R BEING LIED TO !
Wow. We SAW those SA doctors clearly describe Omn as “ very mild”. But this nonsense continues? And people are still unquestioningly com plying? How st upid are we?
Trying to stop Covid is like trying to stop the cold. It’s never going to happen. Give up the f*cking act already.
"We will own everything, and you will be happy".
Another day, another decree. And NOTHING of this is going to make ANY difference.
Are you still using the fraudulent pcr test?
I never want to hear about overwhelming the healthcare system again. You fired health care workers for not getting vaccinated, that is a you problem not a healthcare problem.
More 💩 cause you allow it 🇨🇦
Whom Can We Trust If No One Is Trustworthy?
One of my favorite quips from Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is when Tom is defined as “a glittering hero…the pet of the old, the envy of the young,” and there were “some that believed that he would be President, yet, if he escaped hanging.” With these few words, Twain captured the essence of leadership in our world. Those who get to the top are the fiercest, most determined, and most ruthless. Today, the latter quality has become so intense that we can no longer believe our leaders, and certainly not trust them to have our best interest in mind.
I am not accusing any leader in particular, or even leaders as a whole. It is simply that in an egoistic world, where people vie to topple one another on their way to the top, the one at the top is clearly the one who trampled over and knocked down more people than anyone else. Concisely, to get to the top in an egoistic world you have to be the biggest egoist.
So how do we know whom to trust? We don’t know and we cannot know. All we know is that we are in the dark.
In a culture of unhinged selfishness, any conspiracy theory seems reasonable, while truth is nowhere to be found. When every person who says or writes something is trying to promote some hidden agenda, you have no way of knowing who is right, what really happened, or if anything happened at all.
The only way to get some clarity in the news and goodwill from our leaders is to say “Enough!” to our current system and build something entirely independent. The guiding principle of such a system should be “information only,” no commentary. Commentary means that information has already been skewed. Information means saying only what happened, as much as possible, not why, and not who is to blame and who we should praise.
Concurrently, we must begin a comprehensive process of self-teaching. We have to know not only what is happening, but why we skew and distort everything. In other words, we have to know about human nature and how it inherently presents matters according to its own subjective view, which caters to one’s own interest. To “clear” ourselves from that deformity, we must learn how to rise above our personal interest and develop an equally favorable attitude toward others. This is our only guarantee that our interpretation of things will be even and correct.
Once we achieve such an attitude, we will discover that the bad things we see in our world reflect our own, internal wickedness. Our ill-will toward others creates a world where ill-will governs, and so the world is filled with wickedness and cruelty. Therefore, all we need in order to create positive leadership—and to generally eliminate ill-will from the world—is to generate goodwill within us. When we nurture goodwill toward others, we will fill the world with goodwill. As a result, the world will fill with kindness and compassion. By changing ourselves, we will create a world that is opposite from the world we have created through our desires to govern, patronize, and often destroy other people.
Gosh the vaccinated must be a little disappointed. ROFL "vaccines work".
Immediate family are you effing kidding me like seriously what It shouldn’t matter whether you’re related or not what kind of stupid decision making is this

I am Honestly beginning to wonder if we have been taken over by Aliens. That woman looks evil and she couldn't stop herself from smiling about this. Why do they have to rub hand sanitizer all over themselves before talking??
Can anyone save us from this Orwellian nightmare?
