    Manitoba is again tightening COVID-19 restrictions and keeping some schools under remote learning into June as the province’s health care system continues to struggle under the weight of hundreds of new cases a day.

    Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister announced the new orders that will target gatherings, retail and workplaces, which go into effect Saturday, along with chief public health officer, Dr. Brent Roussin Thursday.

    The announcement means a ban on social gatherings, both indoors and out, that was due to expire Saturday will now remain in effect for another two weeks. The province will also be closing all recreation spaces like playgrounds, golf courses, sports fields, parks, and campgrounds.  

    Roussin also said schools in the cities of Winnipeg and Brandon, and in the Red River Valley and Garden Valley school divisions that were moved to remote learning earlier this month will continue remotely until June 7.

    The news comes as the province continues to see swelling hospital rates connected to COVID-19 and health officials reported 297 new cases and eight additional deaths Thursday.
