According to a CBC News summary of today's press conference, both individuals and businesses can be fined for not following the social distancing mandate.  


​To read the full bulletin from the Province of Manitoba, visit news.gov.mb.ca/news/index.html?item=47465

As of April 1, 2020, the province of Manitoba has restricted operation of non-critical businesses, per order 67 of the Public Health Act.  Under that order, businesses that provide for the health and well-being of animals, including boarding kennels and other service providers, are permitted to operate.  For more information on the State of Emergency and pursuant legislation, please visit the MB Government's website at https://www.gov.mb.ca/covid19/soe.html.   


That being said, our first priority is the health and safety of everyone in our community.  This includes our clients, their pets, our staff, and their families.  Our staff have the right to choose to remain at home during this challenging time and have been given the option to take a leave of absence until the state of emergency is lifted and social distancing is no longer mandated. 


Pawsitive Pet Care staff who are continuing to work will only be visiting those clients to whom we are, indeed, an essential service.  This includes clients who are unable to care for their own pets due to disability or injury, and clients who require pet care services because they themselves are essential service workers and must continue to work in order to serve, provide for, and care for our community.   As always, we will take every possible precaution, including sanitizing our hands before and after every visit. 


To those front-line workers:  We thank you for your efforts during this difficult time and we will do whatever we can to assist.  Thank you for all your are doing and have done.  


To our staff:  Thank you for caring for the pets of our front-line workers, we will do whatever way we can contribute to the fight against Covid-19, and however we can provide peace of mind to our front-line workers.  


To our clients:  Thank you for your words of support and for your kindness.  We very much look forward to seeing our furry friends again as soon as possible.  We miss them, we miss our daily routines, and we value your business.  Most of all, we value the relationships we have developed over the past 10 years, with our clients and especially with the loveable animals we see every day.  


To our larger community:  This will pass.  It is a challenging time, but please continue to practice social distancing, follow the advice of our medical experts, and take care of yourselves and each other.  We look forward to seeing you when we are out and about walking dogs and visiting pets.  Be well.


Sincerely,


Jillian and the Pawsitive Pet Care Team
