COVID-19 Information Update – March 5, 2021

Lifesaving Society Manitoba has issued a new Information Bulletin as a response to the updated COVID-19 Public Health Orders in Manitoba.

Swimming pools are now allowed to reopen under the March 5, 2021 Health Orders. We have reviewed the content of the health orders and have obtained further clarification from Public Health on how staff training and facility reopening may take place. For the most part, existing guidance issued by the Society in 2020 remains the standard which facilities are required to follow.

All of the Society’s COVID-19 Bulletins, Guidelines, and Training documents may be found in the COVID-19 Section of our website.
