June 4, 2020
Public health officials advise no new cases of COVID-19 were identified as of 9:30 a.m. today. The total number of lab-confirmed positive and probable positive cases in Manitoba is 298.
The data also shows:
• no individuals in hospital or intensive care;
• seven active cases and 284 individuals who have recovered from COVID-19; and
• the number of deaths due to COVID-19 remains at seven.
As of yesterday, an additional 899 laboratory tests were performed. This brings the total number of tests performed since early February to 46,701.
Today, beach safety officers return to patrol the beaches in Birds Hill, Winnipeg Beach and Grand Beach provincial parks. As the weather heats up and more people venture out to beaches and parks, visitors are reminded to know their limits and to supervise and keep children within arms’ reach at all times. Due to COVID-19, the province’s life-jacket loaner program will not be operating at this time so individuals should bring their own life jackets/personal flotation devices if they are a non-swimmer.
Standard physical distancing practices should be followed, including two metres or six feet of separation from other beach users outside your family group, and four metres or 12 feet of separation between each group’s towels and blankets on the beach to allow for foot traffic to and from the water. More information on guidelines for Manitoba beaches can be found at www.gov.mb.ca/sd/parks/provincial-park-beaches/index.html.
