See updated mask requirements, mask distribution times and locations, applies to all UM campuses

In order to protect our UM community, the wearing of masks is now mandatory on all UM campuses. This applies when indoors at all times on UM campuses even when physical distancing is possible. The only exception is for short periods of time when someone is eating or drinking while physically distanced from others or if someone is alone in their office and physical distanced from others.

The Province of Manitoba also announced that “Manitoba’s public health officials will be elevating the #RestartMB Pandemic Response System level for the Winnipeg Metropolitan Region to Restricted (orange) effective Sept. 28, with new measures being put in place to help slow the spread of COVID-19”. This includes the directive that “masks will be mandatory in all indoor public places in these communities.”
