Current testing parameters include people with symptoms who have travelled outside Manitoba in the last 14 days, close contacts of a confirmed case, health care workers, all patients admitted to hospital with respiratory symptoms, lab workers who have worked with COVID-19 tests, and individuals who live/work in the north, a remote or isolated community, or congregate setting.

Should I wear a mask to protect myself?

It is not clear there is any significant benefit to wearing masks to prevent influenza or influenza-like- illnesses (including COVID-19) in community settings.

Wear a facemask:

If you are sick: You should wear a facemask when you are around other individuals (e.g., sharing a room or

vehicle) and before you enter a healthcare provider’s office.

If you are NOT sick: You do not need to wear a facemask unless you are caring for someone who is sick (and they are not able to wear a facemask). Facemasks may be in short supply therefore they should be saved for high risk individuals and health care providers.

If you are using gloves or masks upon your own choice, please discard these items accordingly.

10-person limit not applicable for healthcare or social services

IRTC COVID-19 Pandemic Bulletin #19 – April 8, 2020

April 8, 2020

IRTC UPDATE:

Public health officials advise four additional cases of COVID-19 have been identified as of 9:30 a.m., bringing the total number of lab-confirmed positive and probable positive cases in Manitoba to 221.

The data also shows:

  • 12 individuals are currently hospitalized, which includes six individuals in intensive care;
  • 69 individuals have recovered from COVID-19; and

Manitobans should not interpret current case numbers to mean the risk is reduced. The current statistics may be a reflection of the effect strict social distancing measures have had, and reaffirms that these measures must be continued.

Manitobans are reminded this is not the time to let their guard down. Actions taken today will affect case numbers in the weeks ahead. All Manitobans must remain vigilant to flatten the curve of this virus. This weekend is normally busy with gatherings for Easter or Passover celebrations.
