In response to the reopening announcements by the Province of Manitoba, we have been working to acquire all the necessary tools to safely reopen all our branches to the public. This include plexi-glass shields for all stations, floor decals, signage, sanitizer, etc. We are happy to report that as of Monday, June 1st, all branches will be open for business. Please note, our Miniota branch will continue to be closed Mondays and Thursdays.
In an effort to provide a safe environment for all members and staff, we ask that anyone who has recently travelled outside of the province, feels unwell, or has been in contact with someone who’s tested positive for Covid-19 refrain from visiting our branches, and instead utilize our contact-free services.
For those visiting our branches, we ask that you adhere to all restrictions set, namely, limitation of members in the branch at a time, traffic flow into and out of the branch, physical distancing decals on the floor, and utilizing hand sanitizer upon entering the branch.
Thank you for your continued cooperation.
