Manitoba Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Brent Roussin announced the latest COVID-19 numbers this afternoon. He reported there are two new cases taking the total to 300, 284 individuals are listed as recovered and there are nine active cases.
Roussin adds numbers continue to be favorable but it is not a return to normal as we are not done with this virus so precautions such as self isolation, physical distancing and hand washing continue to be important.
Hospitals across the province are preparing to ease restrictions on visitors noting the new guidelines are specifically for patients who are admitted to inpatient beds and do not apply to outpatients or to personal care homes where outdoor visits are taking place.
Saskatchewan reports one new case of COVID-19 in the Far North bringing the provinces total to 649, 27 cases are considered active, 611 people have recovered and one person is in hospital. Saskatchewan RCMP report they received 35 calls last week related to COVID-19 including 20 complaints of large gatherings of over ten people. No charges were laid.
