Manitoba tightens up travel to the north again


Manitoba is re-implementing travel restriction to northern and remote communities, including First Nations.

The restrictions come into effect Sept. 3.

The government announced the move after a jump in COVID-19 cases in recent weeks.

Of 469 active cases in Manitoba, none are on First Nations.
