Dear Downtown Winnipeg BIZ Member,
I hope you found some time to rest and catch-up with family by phone or online this Easter weekend. With no family dinners for the foreseeable future, my Mom turned her kitchen into a painting studio. It looks as though I may finally need to learn how to cook a turkey on my own!
Our BIZ team will be having an all-staff video conference call this Wednesday. While we know how important it is to be on the street at this time, I also believe it's important for us to connect as a team however we can. It's a chance for our BIZ staff to ask questions and also discuss how we can adapt our services to meet your needs in the coming months. If there's any message you'd like me to share with the BIZ team, please let me know.
In the meantime, I want to share a brief update with you today as the Province announced an extension of its Public Health Order this afternoon.
Public Health Orders extended to April 28
The chief provincial public health officer is extending the public health orders issued on March 30 for two weeks. The orders that were to expire on April 14 are now extended to April 28, 2020. This means that the measures put in place regarding the operation of critical and non-critical businesses are still in effect. Here's the original Public Health Act (PDF).
