The City of Winnipeg says city hall weddings, hockey games, and other activities will be suspended as of Friday night.

Recreation and leisure programs and services, including Leisure Guide programming, and closing all City-owned and operated recreation facilities, gyms, indoor pools, arenas, and libraries will be closed on Saturday until further notice. 

City Hall wedding ceremonies are being suspended until further notice. The Council Building will be closed to the public.

Mayor Brian Bowman wants Winnipeggers to stay calm and follow all health orders.

"We will continue to be there to do our part," Bowman says.

Bowman says 311's service desk will remain open.

"Although community centre facilities and assets are owned by the City, they are their own legal entities, each governed by volunteer board of directors. Each community centre board is responsible for the management and operations of their centre, and are ultimately responsible for the decision to close their community centre," the city says. 

The suspension of in-home, non-emergency inspections are still in effect, until further notice.

The Mayor says that he understands Manitobans are rattled with the news and are asking people to stay calm, saying Winnipeg will "weather the storm."

"Now is the time for calm and compliance," Bowman says. "We will get through this."
