The WMBA is hoping to start back up as soon as it's given the go-ahead from Basketball Manitoba and the Province. In the meantime, we urge everyone to do their part:
- Reduce the number of close contacts outside your household and avoid closed-in or crowded spaces.
- Stay home if sick.
- Wash/sanitize your hands, cover your cough, and physically distance when you are with people outside your household.
- If you cannot physically distance, you should wear a mask to help reduce your risk.
- Get a flu shot.
