Alberta is declaring COVID over in the midst of a spike.  How stupid is Kenney?

No need to quarantine if positive?  No need to isolate if a close contact?  No testing except for serious symptoms?

And masks optional, even for positive cases.

This has Florida written all over it.

Wondering if the Stamps game here on Aug 29th is going to be played...  will MB even allow the Stamps to come here from where AB will be then...

47 new cases in MB today, 21 in Interlake - Eastern.... only 13 in WPG.

The CFL has a strict return to play policy for players and personnel. I think they will just keep the policies in place with the Delta variance driving numbers up in a few of the provinces.

Players will continue to have testing done and they will most probably continue to wear masks.

Sask. is also not making self-isolation mandatory after receiving a positive Covid 19 test. They are leaving it up to the public to make the right decision.

They. dont want you to go to work when your sick but they say it's ok if you got symptoms yo show up to a game? After all the restrictions they are opening it right up. It's a gamble.

SK has now overtaken MB for worst new case count per capita, and AB is going to quickly overtake and lap everyone at their rate.

Not isolating when positive.....yeesh.

Over the weekend Manitoba had 101 new cases, with 49 in the Winnipeg, 24 in the Interlake, and 18 in the Southern region. Winnipeg's TPR is now 1.9% and and we had 3 deaths.

Very good news as we have reached our goal of 80% first shots, and we are 25,000 away from 75% second shots which we will reach probably by this weekend. Two thumbs up for the people of Manitoba.

About as stupid as they come.  Big trouble in AB.

Active cases in Canada have shot up over 10,000 over the weekend - they were down to around 4000 just a few weeks ago. 
 
Over 1000 in BC and Alberta each over the weekend - hospitalizations not spiking - yet...

With mask mandates lifted in Manitoba, I am pleased to see a majority of people still wearing them indoors.  Store staff are all wearing them (ours wear KN95's for their own protection, and can use a faceshield if an unmasked shopper worries them.)

I think we will weather lifting of mask mandates better than others, unfortunately, because then there will be no reason to return to the mask mandate and safer procedures come Sept 7...  which would allow a differentiation between vaxxed and unvaxxed for access again, and spur on vaccinations.

With no vaccine incentive now (other than Life), we have seen number drop, while in Quebec they have initiated vaccine passports and seen a huge spike in vaccine uptake.

I wasn't a fan of the vaccine incentive, but it did bring a lot of people out to get vaccinated. However with that said if a person's life should be enough of a reason.

As of this Monday, my wife office will no longer be operating on people that are not double vac. Her office still requires you to wear a mask while in the building.

Canadian Tire Grant Park today, a few of the younger staff members not wearing masks. There was also two small groups of Hutterites in the building, all not wearing masks.

Princess Auto: All staff in masks, 4 people not wearing masks, all Hutterites.

Some debate about masks in another forum.

See facts below.  When you wear a mask, you protect others as well as yourself. Masks work best when everyone wears one

Okay so I am all for vaccinations and wearing masks in public. However in Manitoba some stores don't require you to wear a mask anymore.

So today I am at a large box store picking up some building supplies. An older gentlemen is in the store with no mask, and a lady shows up with two young children, probably 6-10 years old. She starts telling the guy that he has no respect for the kids under 12 and the people who are not able to get vaccinated do to health reason. The guy replied back if your worried about your children don't take them to places where masks are not mandatory, or put a mask on your children.

Now I will continue to wear a mask in public for the reasons she stated. However now it's his right not to wear a mask in some public places and he is also right that if she is worried about her children put a mask on them.
