To the best of our ability, we are following directions from the Government of Manitoba, which includes limiting physical proximity. We will remain open for essential services only.

Our main focus will be to preventatively slow the spread of the virus as to decrease the impact on those most vulnerable. As new information is available and recommendations change, WCWRC’s plan will adapt. Please be patient with us as we all work to figure out the best way to handle this situation. Check this page regularly for updates.
