Manitoba Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Brent Roussin announced this afternoon 11 new cases of COVID-19 in the province. Eight of the new cases were in the Winnipeg Health Region, two in the Southern Health Region and one in the Prairie Mountain Health Region. None of the new Winnipeg cases are linked to John Pritchard School where cases were reported earlier this week. The total reported cases is now 15 hundred with 293 active, 1191 individuals have recovered and ten are in hospital with two in intensive care.
Roussin also reminds you masks are strongly recommended but not required and public gatherings will be limited to 50 people indoors and 100 outdoors but they will continue to monitor all regions with increased cases closely to determine if additional restrictions are necessary.
