He held a news conference on Wednesday morning and the province says anyone who attended should self-monitor and get a quick test.

At the press conference, Moe said that all current public health measures, including wearing masks in public places, have been extended through the end of February.

He also said that no new measures are contemplated at this time and that restrictions in other provinces do not “appear to be slowing down the spread of Omicron.”
