The Forks reopens among coronavirus pandemic – with restrictions

One of Winnipeg’s most popular tourist destinations has (mostly) reopened.

The Forks opened their doors Friday at 11 a.m. and the Commons will be serving up food and drinks.

But things aren’t totally back to normal.

Those coming into The Forks will have their hands sprayed with sanitizer, and while you’ll be able to grab a bite and do some shopping, there will be no indoor seating and no gatherings are allowed inside.

The lack of indoor seating is based on provincial rules for phase-one reopening, says Forks’ spokesperson, Clare MacKay.

“So you won’t be able to sit inside if you order food inside, but you can take it outside to the patio or you can do curb-side pick-up,” explained Mackay, adding cleaning has also been ramped up outside.

“We have staff on who will be cleaning down furniture outside between people sitting out there.”
