Coronavirus: Manitoba public health officials provide update on COVID-19

Manitoba‘s public health officials say the number of people who have tested positive for COVID-19 in the province remains at 19.

No new Manitoba cases were announced Thursday or Friday but two were announced on Saturday.

So far, provincial health officials have said all of the COVID-19 cases in Manitoba have been related to recent travel, rather than the virus spreading within the community.

Government officials want people to postpone or cancel trips outside of Manitoba saying now is not the time for non-essential travel.

One person was hospitalized earlier this week after being diagnosed with the disease.

To ensure the local labs are not being stretched past capacity, the provincial government is limiting testing to people who have symptoms.
