Dear WANTE members,

Please read the following information released by the Manitoba government earlier today. For the purpose of this bulletin, I have included the section specific to schools. To read through the entire release, you can find it by going to the following link:

The Manitoba government will require all provincial employees who work with vulnerable populations to be fully immunized for COVID-19 by Oct. 31, or undergo regular testing, to protect Manitoba against a fourth COVID-19 wave, Premier Brian Pallister announced today... The new public health orders will require all designated provincial
public service workers who have ongoing contact with vulnerable populations, especially children, to be fully immunized or submit to testing up to three times per week. Designated workers include: educational workers including teachers, school and educational support staff, practicum students, bus drivers and custodial staff”.
