Our office has received many queries about whether or not swimming instruction can take place in backyard and outdoor pools under the most recent Public Health Orders issued on June 12, 2021. We have reached out to Manitoba Public Health with questions about this topic, as the Health Orders themselves do not indicate one way or the other. Once we have a response from Manitoba Public Health we will circulate it to our membership through this website, our social media feeds, and our Lifelines newsletter.
