Manitoba Public Health Officer Dr. Brent Roussin says our preparedness and the use of credible information are vital right now. He urges you to go to the government of Manitoba website as there’s a lot of information there about the Coronavirus.
He advises if you haven’t changed the aspects of the way you live your day to day life, you’re not thinking about the role you can play to protect yourself, the people around you and our province at large so now is the time to implement those distancing strategies
He added that we will be able to get back to our normal day to day living but right now we need Manitobans to focus on what they can do to limit the spread of this virus in our communities.
Roussin notes there is no need for panic buying to stockpile food as Canada has a very efficient food chain.
