Manitoba Unveils Shelters for Outdoor Personal Care Home Visits

In Winnipeg, Cameron Friesen, Manitoba’s minister of health, seniors, and active living, unveils the outdoor all-season shelters that will be built in the province to allow families to safely visit with personal care home residents during the ongoing COVID-19 (coronavirus disease) pandemic. He is joined by Reg Helwer, the province’s minister of central services; Charles Gagné, CEO of the long-term care agency Actionmarguerite; and Monique Buckberger, Winnipeg district manager for PCL Construction. The provincial government announced in June that it was developing a plan to build visitation shelters that would be located near personal care homes. (September 15, 2020) (no interpretation)
