Winnipeg Mayor Brian Bowman and Jason Shaw, head of the city’s emergency operations centre, provided an update the city's response to the COVID-19 pandemic and also the expected spring flooding situation.

The City of Winnipeg says 41 property owners will need dikes to protect from river flooding, and another 16 remain at risk of flooding this spring.

In a release Monday afternoon the city said crews continue to monitor river levels and are working with the province to decide if additional properties will require sandbag dikes.

While property owners are responsible for building their own sandbag dikes, the city says homeowners who have trouble finding volunteers due to COVID-19 may get help from city crews.
