Manitoba Parks This Weekend

Manitoba Parks would like to remind campers that things will be a little bit different this year. As Manitoba continues to battle a global pandemic, Elisabeth Ostrop with Manitoba Parks has some reminders for campers.

Remember to Physical Distance:

Even though you are in a park, Manitobans must remember to practice physical distancing. This includes while on trails, in campgrounds, at the beach or green space or when using any washroom or shower facilities.

Still A Limit on Group Sizes:

No more than ten people may gather in any common area or green space.

Who You are Camping with:

Under normal circumstances you might go camping with your friends or neighbours and then socialize between campsites. For this weekend that is not being encouraged. Rather, campers should stick to their family group or household and not mingle with neighbouring campsites.

Purchase Your Park Entry Permit At Home

Permits can now be purchased online. By purchasing it at home, you can print off your permit and have it ready. That way, you will not have to wait in line at the campground office to make that transaction.

Remember the Travel Restrictions to Northern Manitoba:

No one from southern Manitoba should be heading up to Flin Flon, The Pas, or Thompson to go camping or fishing this weekend. (Mani source: Discover Westman Online News)
