Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister & Dr. Brent Roussin announced the province's reopening plan on Thursday.

The "4-3-2-One Great Summer Reopening Path" sets a path for more openings and fewer restrictions as vaccination levels rise over the course of the summer the province says. 

These include:

• four reopening categories – gathering and socializing, travel and tourism, shopping and services, and dining out and entertainment;
• three holiday milestones – Canada Day, August Long Weekend and Labour Day; and
• two public health responsibilities – getting vaccinated and following public health orders that lower the risk of COVID-19.

The province also announced immunization targets and they are:

• over 70 per cent of all Manitobans aged 12 and over have received their first dose and over 25 per have received their second dose by Canada Day;
• 75 per cent or greater of all Manitobans aged 12 and over have received their first dose and over 50 per have received their second dose by the August long weekend; and
• 80 per cent or greater of all Manitobans aged 12 and over have received their first dose and over 75 per have received their second dose by Labour Day.

They add that reopening activity levels will be tied to the first and second dose immunization targets:

• meeting vaccine targets by Canada Day means businesses, services and facilities can open at 25 per cent capacity or greater levels;
• meeting vaccine targets by the August long weekend means businesses, services and facilities can open at 50 per cent capacity or greater levels; and
• meeting vaccine targets by Labour Day means businesses, services and facilities can open with limited restrictions.
