Following announcements by several other provinces, Manitoba has reduced their self-isolation requirements for fully vaccinated people testing positive for COVID.
As of January 1, 2022, fully vaccinated Manitobans who test positive for COVID-19 by way of a PCR or rapid antigen test, must isolate for five days (down from 10 days), if they have no symptoms.
Further, if they are fully vaccinated, have tested positive and have symptoms, they may also isolate for five days (after the onset of symptoms of COVID-19 or the date of the COVID test, whichever is later), if at least 24 hours has passed without a fever (without the aid of fever-reducing drugs).
Unvaccinated individuals must continue to isolate for 10 days after the date of their test, and at least 24 hours must have passed since any fever resolved, without the aid of fever-reducing drugs.
