It was announced earlier this week that more COVID 19 restrictions in Manitoba could be lifted.
Doctor Sarah Lesperance from the Northern Health Region spoke to Arctic Radio and gave some important messages for those that are concerned about these proposed restrictions being lifted.
Even if these restrictions are lifted people have the option of staying home if they don’t feel safe going out and Lesperance says the risk of COVID 19 in our region still remains low as long as we remain COVID safe. Being COVID safe means taking necessary precautions to keep yourself and other people safe such as staying home if you feel sick.
Lesperance added that it’s important that you not allow this pandemic to get in the way of going to scheduled appointments and that you continue to seek medical care when you need it.
