New cases include:

• two cases in the Interlake-Eastern health region;

• one case in the Winnipeg health region;

• two cases in the Prairie Mountain Health region; and

• three case in the Southern Health–Santé Sud health region. 

Seven of today’s eight cases are on Hutterite colonies.

The data also shows:

• one individual is in intensive care,

• 49 active cases and 318 individuals have recovered from COVID-19, and

• the number of deaths due to COVID-19 remains at seven.

Recent case counts are reflective of an outbreak of cases in several Hutterite colonies as well as travel-related cases. The investigations are ongoing. When completed, additional information will be provided as needed to inform people of any public health risks.

An additional 722 laboratory tests were performed on Tuesday, bringing the total number of tests performed since early February to 78,283. 

The Camperville Primary Health Care Centre in Camperville and Waterhen Primary Health Care Centre in Waterhen, both in the Prairie Mountain Health region, are providing additional COVID-19 testing on Monday and Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. until otherwise noted. In addition, a drive-thru testing site will be available in Russell, at the Russell EMS Building located at 426 Alexandria Ave. S., from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. between July 24 and July 31. 

A draft phase four for Restoring Safe Services was announced yesterday and could see further reopening of the province based on public health advice and consultation with key sectors. Proposed measures could be implemented as early as July 25. Manitobans are invited to provide feedback by taking a survey at https://engagemb.ca/phase-four-restoring-safe-services
