Due to the continued drying of the forests in eastern Manitoba, it has now become necessary to implement travel restrictions for Areas 1, 2, and 3. These precautions are necessary in order to reduce the risk of human caused wildfires. The travel restrictions are in addition to the fire ban already in place. These areas also include, Grand Beach and Birds Hill Provincial Park. The hours of operation are also limited to 8 pm to noon the following day for forestry, mining, and quarry operations. Propane and gas appliances are still permitted.
