Latest updates

COVID-19 vaccine requirement for front-line City of Winnipeg staff

Front-line City of Winnipeg employees who have ongoing contact with vulnerable residents, including children under 12, or work in high-risk settings with direct, ongoing contact with the public will be required to be fully vaccinated.

Requiring our front-line employees to get their COVID-19 vaccination adds one more layer of protection for everyone, especially those who are still unable to get vaccinated. Staff who work in identified positions that are required to have a COVID-19 vaccine are expected to be fully vaccinated by November 15, 2021.

The City is continuing to explore options for staff who are not vaccinated, including frequent COVID-19 testing or redeployment to a role that is not in contact with the public. More details on options for staff will be finalized once we have been able to determine how many employees are not vaccinated. In the meantime, the City is working with the Province on the logistics of a COVID-19 testing program for front-line staff.

Proof of immunization required at select City of Winnipeg operated facilities, for in-person programming

In accordance with provincial public health orders announced on September 2, 2021, proof of COVID-19 immunization is now required to visit and participate in indoor programming at City-operated pools, fitness and leisure centres, arenas, and the Living Prairie Museum interpretive centre.

Proof of immunization is not required to visit a library branch; however, select indoor programming will require proof of immunization – participants will be notified accordingly.

Individuals that do not show proof of immunization as required will not be permitted to enter the facility or participate in indoor programming, unless they fall under an exemption in the provincial public health orders.

Customers are required to bring a piece of government-issued ID to confirm that their identity matches their COVID-19 immunization card.

For more information, see: Ongoing Response.

As part of our commitment to ensure the health and safety of our residents and employees, all individuals entering City-operated facilities or using City vehicles, including Winnipeg Transit and Winnipeg Transit Plus, must wear a face mask as a means to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our community.
