Manitoba Public Health Officer Dr. Brent Roussin announced the latest COVID-19 numbers this afternoon. He reported sixteen new cases have been identified since Saturday in health regions in the southern part of the province. That brings the total number of reported cases to 400 with 74 active and 319 have recovered.
Meanwhile Health Minister Cameron Friesen reminds Manitobans that when their phase four plan came into effect over the weekend parts of the original plan were not implemented. He says right now they have not proceeded to increase indoor and outdoor gathering sizes, they have not removed the 14 day isolation requirement for travelers returning from eastern Canada and they have not allowed resumption of counter service in bars, beverage rooms, brew pubs, micro breweries and distillaries.
Friesen adds public health officials continue to review possible adjustments on a week by week basis.
