Prior to Manitoba having any confirmed cases of COVID-19, Winnipeg Airports Authority had been closely monitoring the situation and refining its contingency plans based on information being shared early on from three key public health resources. These platforms continue to provide timely, accurate and helpful updates to support all Manitobans during this evolving situation. The measures we implement at Winnipeg Richardson International Airport are based on the strategic direction and advice of these public health authorities in accordance with government regulations.
