MPI temporarily relaxes medical suspension for commercial drivers

Manitoba Public Insurance has told the Keystone Agricultural Producers it’s temporarily waiving notifications to commercial drivers for medical reports.

For the time being no automated suspensions will be issued, though the process for reviewing the licence of a driver with a newly diagnosed medical condition will still occur and suspensions may apply if appropriate.

The changes will help Class 1 drivers who are unable to meet with their family doctor and obtain a physical exam, due to the coronavirus.
