COVID-19 update, Oct 1/21

Manitoba Cycling has confirmed through Sport Manitoba that the new public health orders released today (that will come into effect, Tuesday Oct 5/21) does not apply to organized sport.  This means that the remaining cyclocross events are still “a go” as planned (unless something changes).  We will not be restricted to 50 people max. Only outdoor sports contained within a facility have restrictions related to participant and spectator size.

Please continue to be diligent and use your best judgement when attending events to ensure safety for all.  We ask that you wear a mask when you check-in, when lining up at the start line, and anytime you cannot physically distance 2M from another person. Hand sanitize frequently. Please stay home if you are no feeling well.

Stay safe everyone!

In addition, with the release of the latest public health orders, we want to clarify that the gathering limits outlined in orders 1-3 do not supersede the spectator gathering limits in the sport-related orders 14, 15 and 17.

The number of spectators at an outdoor sporting or recreational “facility” must not exceed 50% of the usual spectator capacity of the facility. For cyclocross, as an example, we do not use an outdoor facility, therefore this requirement does not apply.

As proof of vaccination is required for indoor sport facilities, no spectator capacity restrictions apply.

In addition, now that the province has moved to the restricted (orange) level on the pandemic response system, there are no specific changes related to sport.

We are also awaiting information regarding requiring proof of vaccination for sport participants aged 12-17, and we will update you should we receive further clarifications.

Thank you,
