A daycare in Winnipeg is speaking out after the province mandated daycare staff to wear medical-grade masks, but provided masks later discovered not to be medical-graded.

When code red restrictions came into effect in the Winnipeg Metro Region, the executive director of the Niigaanaki Day Care Centre in the city stated that she was told by the province that all staff at childcare centers would now have to wear a medical-grade mask.

There was another message from the Early Learning and Child Care Program stating that they would be supplying medical-grade masks.

The masks slowly started to arrive earlier this week. The masks seemed quite thin. One of her colleagues was able to read a tag found in the box that was written in Chinese, which indicated that the masks were not medical grade.
