The Province of Manitoba is moving forward with a plan to further reduce public health restrictions.
- Capacity limits are eliminated in venues for indoor and outdoor sport.
- Tournaments are allowed.
- As of March 1, 2022, new public health orders have come into effect that remove all remaining proof of vaccination requirements for public places.
- As of March 15, 2022, mask-wearing will no longer be required in indoor public spaces.
At the Sport Manitoba facility:
- The courts and flex space have returned to 100% capacity, and spectators will now be allowed entrance to the courts.
- Boardrooms have reopened and are available for booking by visiting: https://www.sportmanitoba.ca/facility-services/facility-bookings
- Mask-wearing continues to be required in indoor public spaces until March 15. However, Sport Manitoba strongly encourages facility residents and visitors to wear a mask and respect social distancing measures while in our public spaces when not participating in physical activity.

Return to Play
The provincial sport organization makes the final decision on return-to-play plans for their sport. The government does not, although the restrictions and guidelines put in place by the government and health authorities are built into the plans. Sport organizations can strengthen or amplify the regulations if they choose. To review a return-to-play plan, please visit the provincial sport organization’s website.
