In the good news category, Westoba CU has announced having made donations to many community organizations in need throughout the region during the pandemic. They’ve published a list of all recipients at: https://westobacu.com/news/community-donations/
Via the link below, a look at where things stand re schools. Does not sound like a decision one could expect to be made this many months out. Many scenarios being looked at with no guarantee at this time of a resumption of classroom learning in September and the very real possibility of online learning being involved on at least some level. Please read whole story at the link for a fuller picture: https://trib.al/4rDuTPj
More details on Riding Mountain National Park, which in a Facebook post thanks people for not visiting this weekend with motor vehicle traffic to visitors continuing to be suspended.

Brandon School Division announced late this afternoon that their playgrounds are now available for use once again, with the expectation that users practice safe distancing and sanitize before and after use. Please see full notice for all details: https://www.bsd.ca/News/covid19updates/Pages/Default.aspx Please be mindful that with the change in weather there's the chance of crowds developing at some playgrounds that might make distancing difficult, factoring that into your usage decision of any given playground.
This seems like as good a time as any to reflect back on last year's popular post that looks at some of the best in the city: https://ebrandon.ca/buzzpost.aspx?buzz_id=390
Province reports no new cases today. The full bulletin is at: https://news.gov.mb.ca/news/?archive=&item=48238 Here’s to enjoying this great weather safely! Just a note that while the pandemic is still very much ongoing and sounds like the virus has the potential to massively go up in prevalence if given a favourable environment to do so, it won’t be possible or probably necessary for me to post these updates each and every day indefinitely. I will continue to watch for Prairie Mountain Health-specific updates and post to this thread when new locally-relevant info is learned. May return to daily updates in the event of a shift in the pandemic response. It’s important to continue to follow guidance from the province and health officials on the pandemic into what looks like the distant future. Doubly so with the virus having been confirmed to be present in this part of the province with more than two dozen cases. For regular ongoing updates and info on the pandemic and details on orders that are in place to keep us safe, please continue to visit http://www.manitoba.ca/covid19
Please also continue to watch for this thread to pop up regularly with fact-focused local info on the pandemic. If you happen to not already be doing so, also keep a close eye on the Brandon Sun who have been doing a fabulous job in providing local coverage and making it available outside the paywall. They really should be commended as our only local presence at the media briefings, asking questions that folks in this area are much better off with the answers to!
Via the City, a third shift of sequestered staff is now in place at the water treatment plant... to be re-evaluated next week. Thanks to all all staff for making this sacrifice!https://twitter.com/CityBrandon/status/1263462082059608066
