Manitoba Public Insurance suspends Third Party Pandemic Policy, effective March 1

Based on updated guidance from public health, Manitoba Public Insurance is announcing the suspension of its Third Party Pandemic policy, effective March 1. As a result, individuals who are not fully vaccinated or prefer not to share will no longer be required to show proof of vaccination or a negative test result for services/appointments where physical distancing or barriers are not possible, which previously included road tests and driver assessments.

The policy previously applied to all third-party individuals, including consultants, volunteers, board members and contractors, including students and instructors in the Driver Z program.

“Our primary concern continues to be the safety, health and well-being of our staff, customers and business partners,” said Satvir Jatana, Chief Customer Officer, MPI. “We will continue to keep key protocols in place to ensure the ongoing protection of everyone in our locations against the spread of COVID-19.”

Customers attending any MPI location must continue to adhere to the following requirements, until further notice:

  • Wear a mask at all times, preferably a medical grade mask.
  • While customers will again be permitted to wait for their service/appointment in our Service Centre waiting rooms, they will need to maintain social/physical distancing requirements of 6 feet from staff and other customers.
  • Answer pre-screening questions when receiving services or attending appointments. We also encourage customers to continue to also self-screen prior to attending our locations and if they have COVID-19 symptoms, please do not visit until they have subsided.

MPI’s plexi-glass barriers will remain in place and employees that complete road tests and in-car assessments will be required to wear half mask respirators with P95/P100 filters until further notice.

MPI will also resume booking oral knowledge test appointments as of March 1.
