Changes to the Public Health Order announced by the Province of Manitoba

The Province of Manitoba has announced new public health orders which will be in effect as of Saturday, August 7th at 12:01 a.m.

With continued improvement in the overall COVID-19 situation, the interim public health orders only restrict the most high-risk transmission environments.

Distancing: Everyone who is not fully immunized including children under 12. At all times, a physical distance of two meters is recommended in indoor public places.

Indoor Gatherings: Indoor gatherings and events including weddings, funerals, banquets and receptions: Capacity limited to 50 people or 50% of capacity, whichever is greater. Dance floors will remain closed and close gathering and mingling are not recommended.

Outdoor Gatherings: Outdoor gatherings and events including weddings, funerals, banquets and receptions: Capacity limited to 1,500 people or 50% of capacity, whichever is lesser. Dance floors will remain closed and close gathering and mingling are not recommended.

Dining: There will be no group limits for indoor and outdoor dining, no capacity limits or separation requirements between tables and immunization cards will not be required to access services. Guests must remain seated as much as possible and patrons should maintain two-metre distance whenever they are away from their table.

Staff must ensure patrons do not congregate inside/outside restaurants or licensed premises and there is to be no socializing between tables.

Operating hours will no longer be restricted. Dance floors remain closed and sound levels must remain limited below 80-decible levels.

Retail: No capacity limits in place and patrons should maintain two-meter distance from other patrons.

Lessons & Golf Camps: No capacity limits in place and participants should maintain two-meter distance from other participants.

Please note that this public health order is in effect until Tuesday, September 7th, 2021 at 12:01 am and will be reassessed at that time in the context of vaccination rates and the province’s overall COVID-19 situation.

The public health order in place or any future orders can be found on the Province of Manitoba website by clicking here. The Province of Manitoba’s 4-3-2-One Great Summer Reopening Path can be viewed here.

National Junior Selection Camp scheduled for August 29 through September 3 at TPC Toronto at Osprey Valley

Like many athletes in a training environment over the past year, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused disruption to competitive opportunities for junior golfers in Canada. To facilitate the selection of participants for the 2021-2022 National Junior Squad, Golf Canada will hold a National Junior Selection Camp from August 29 through September 3 at TPC Toronto at Osprey Valley in Caledon, Ont. 

Approximately 50 junior boys and girls who have not reached their 19th birthday by August 1, 2021, will be invited to participate in the National Junior Selection Camp. The camp will include skills testing as well as a 54-hole stroke-play competition that will award World Amateur Golf Ranking (WAGR) points. 

Performance at the camp will be considered alongside results from recent competitions to assist Golf Canada in selecting participants for the 2021-2022 National Junior Squad. Additional details about final squad selection will be released later the summer. 

The 54-hole competition at the selection camp will also be used to fill remaining spots for Canada’s team at the World Junior Girls Championship in late September (Markham, Ontario), should this international competition gain government approval to proceed. More information about selection for the World Junior Girls team can be found at this link. 

There are several ways that athletes may qualify for the National Junior Selection Camp. Players who meet any of the following criteria will automatically qualify:

In addition, each provincial golf association may nominate athletes for consideration, and athletes may apply to the camp directly by completing the application form at this link by August 9. Complete information about qualification criteria for the National Junior Selection Camp should be reviewed here

Selected athletes should plan to arrive for the camp in the afternoon or evening on August 29 and depart in the afternoon on September 3. Skills testing and practice rounds will take place on August 30 and August 31. Competitive rounds will occur on the North course at TPC Toronto at Osprey Valley on September 1-3. 

Golf Canada will provide camp participants with a stipend to cover the cost of travel and accommodations while parents are invited to attend the camp at their own expense. 

Please contact Brian Newton (bnewton@golfcanada.ca) with any questions.
