A concerned Manitoban has started a change.org petition to urge the provincial government to reinstate the mandatory 14 day self isolation order for travelers entering and re entering the province.
Candice Arnold the woman who started the petition stated that when the travel restrictions were put in place we had almost no active cases before experiencing an increase in new cases in the province that were all said to be travel related.
She firmly believes that if we have travel restrictions we will be free to live our lives in the near future and we will feel safer with fewer cases.
She also feels that the provincial government should educate the public on what it means to self isolate to prevent future clusters and outbreaks.
The goal is to get at least 5000 signatures on the change dot org petitions and Arnold hopes that it will get the attention of Manitoba politicians.
