Public health officials advise two new cases were identified over the weekend and one new case of COVID-19 was identified as of Monday, June 22, 2020. This brings the total number of lab-confirmed positive and probable positive cases in Manitoba to 314.
The data also shows:
• no individuals in hospital or intensive care,
• 14 active cases and 293 individuals who have recovered from COVID-19, and
• the number of deaths due to COVID-19 remains at seven.
As of yesterday, an additional 1,951 laboratory tests were performed between June 19 and June 21 (Friday – 733, Saturday – 850 and Sunday – 368). This brings the total number of tests performed since early February to 58,221.
While COVID-19 activity remains very low in the province, personal care homes (PCH) will soon begin permitting limited indoor visits for designated visitors. The indoor visits, to be approved by individual PCH care teams, will enable each resident to identify a short list of individuals who may visit during allotted times.
These scheduled visits will be a limited supplement to outdoor and virtual visits, which will continue, and are not a return to normal. Visits must be scheduled, and visitors will be screened upon arrival for symptoms and history of travel or exposure to COVID-19. Visitors must maintain physical distancing throughout their visit. Individuals will also be requested to bring and wear a non-medical mask for the duration of their time inside the facility.
