Manitoba Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Brent Roussin announced the latest COVID-19 numbers this afternoon. He reported one new case of COVID-19 for a total of 298, there are 282 individuals that are listed as recovered and there are 9 active cases. He noted today’s case and the previous three cases are all linked to a cluster associated with temporary foreign workers in the Southern Health Region.
Roussin adds they followed recommended procedures so there is no risk to the public.
Hospitals and health centers will begin allowing expanded visitor access for inpatients. The gradual easing of visitor restrictions will occur at individual sites across the province beginning as early as Friday. These changes allow patients to see loved ones in person while measures remain in place to prevent the introduction and spread of COVID-19 in heath facilities.
