COVID-19 Safety Plans

The Manitoba Arts Council (MAC) recommends that anyone organizing arts and culture events or managing venues develops a COVID-19 safety plan, prior to holding any public event.

MAC is available to review COVID-19 safety plans for alignment with the current Manitoba Public Health Orders and guidelines. MAC can provide feedback on safety plans but will be acting in an advisory role only. MAC will not approve plans.

Organizations are responsible for monitoring any changes to the Public Health Order or guidelines and adjusting plans as necessary to adhere to the existing public health order on the day of their event.

To submit a plan for review to MAC or to make inquiries please contact helpdesk@artscouncil.mb.ca or call (204) 945-0263.
