Manitoba Public Health Orders As of December 6th, 2021

Manitoba Public Health Orders As of December 6th, 2021

As of December 6, 2021, public health orders require youth between 12 to 17 years old attending indoor sporting facilities (including schools) to provide proof that they have received at least one dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccine for COVID‑19.

If they have not had at least one dose, they must provide proof of a pharmacist-confirmed negative result from an approved rapid antigen test, from a test take within the 72 hours before they participate. The public health orders do not allow other health care providers to confirm a test result.

Info sheet -Public Health Orders for Indoor Youth Sport Facilities

What government issued ID is acceptable? Acceptable government issued ID includes provincial driver’s licences, provincial health cards, passports, status cards, permanent resident cards, citizenship cards, social insurance cards and birth certificates. Students may also use school-issued student ID cards.

Information is subject to change according to the number of active cases in the province.

Travel and Isolation
For kids with one dose, especially those travelling to the USA – there are some
self-isolation rules around going back to school, so we suggest this also
applies to sport. More information click here (link).

Selling Rapid COVID-19 Tests to the Public and Rapid Test
Administration/Observation – College of Pharmacists of Manitoba
Recent communication from the provincial COVID-19 Testing Task Force indicates that rapid COVID-19 tests can now be sold directly to the public through pharmacies.
However, it is important to note that international travelers (depending on destination) and individuals required to submit for regular COVID-19 testing under various Public Health Orders (e.g., unvaccinated front-line designated persons, unvaccinated youth aged 12 to 17 participating in and/or attending indoor sporting/recreational facilities, etc.) must use rapid testing kits that are administered and/or observed by a health care professional with a confirmation report generated from the observation. CPhM has received confirmation that the pharmacist can either observe the person self-testing and confirm the result, or perform the test themselves. Regardless of who performs the test, the pharmacist must ensure the test is done properly and
confirm the result.

Members of the public exhibiting signs or symptoms of COVID-19, or having tested positive using a rapid test, must be directed to a provincial testing site immediately. For any questions regarding rapid testing or the public health orders, please contact the COVID-19 Testing Task Force at

MSG from the Provincial Coach- MFA 1

A message from our Provincial Coach, Ayach Bounachada, regarding the first tournament of the year, the MFA 1 Open:

“Dear Athletes,

Exactly 23 months since we did organise our last local tournament. Today was a big day for Manitoba Fencing- a big day for our athletes, coaches, and parents as well. The first tournament of this new season went excellent. We really didn’t expect so many participants. Our athletes were extreamly happy being in the venue competing and praticing their favourite and best sport.

For that occasion, I have to thank the MFA Board who backed and pushed for the organisation of  that tournament – also a big thanks to the MFA staff for preparing and doing their best to run it.
Thanks to all the volunteers who participated in the venue set up and take down.
Thanks to all our officials to make the tournament happen.
Thanks to all the coaches who have advertised the event and were behind their athletes while fencing.
And finally, a special thanks to Zach Allard who accepted to do the armourer job to make sure the tournament happened and wasn’t able to coach his own athletes for parts of the day.

To finish a BIG BRAVO to all the athletes for their great performance, even after not competiting for almost two years!


Thanks and have a great evening!!”
