COVID-19 BULLETIN #181

Province of Manitoba Media Bulletin


September 8, 2020


Public health officials advise the current five-day COVID-19 test positivity rate is 1.3 per cent and 11 new cases of the virus have been identified as of 9:30 a.m. today. This brings the total number of cases in Manitoba to 1,349.

The data shows:

• one case in the Interlake–Eastern health region;

• two cases in the Southern Health–Santé Sud health region; and

• eight cases in the Winnipeg health region.

The data also shows:

• 393 active cases and 940 individuals have recovered from COVID-19; 

• there are 13 people in hospital and three people in intensive care; and

• the number of deaths due to COVID-19 is 16.

Case investigations continue and if a public health risk is identified, the public will be notified. 

Confirmed laboratory testing numbers show 1,219 tests were completed on Monday, bringing the total number of lab tests completed since early February to 148,537.

As students, teachers and staff return to school this week, public health officials strongly encourage all Manitobans to return to the fundamentals to help stop the spread of COVID-19. This means staying home if you are sick, washing/sanitizing your hands, covering your cough and physically distancing when you are with people outside your household. If you cannot physically distance, wear a mask. 

Unless recommended by Public Health, only individuals experiencing COVID-19 symptoms should go for testing. Individuals with symptoms are asked to seek testing as soon as possible once symptoms are present. Employers are asked to only send employees for testing if they have symptoms or if testing has been recommended by public health officials. 

The online assessment tool can be found at https://sharedhealthmb.ca/covid19/screening-tool/ and COVID-19 symptoms can be found at www.gov.mb.ca/covid19/updates/about.html#collapse4.
