Manitoba Library Association has reached out to Manitoba Government Inquiry, and attended an information session on September 10 concerning Enforcement of Public Health Orders for Non-Profit Organizations.
At this time, public libraries are not specifically addressed in the Orders and may open without restrictions. However, masks are required in all public spaces, including public libraries.
Reporting of COVID-19 cases in the workplace still apply to all businesses.
Provincial Health Orders currently do not require proof of COVID-19 vaccination or proof of exemption for employees or patrons of public libraries. Public library organizations wishing to implement vaccine requirements for patrons or employees may seek to do so through their governance structure.
