COVID-19 BULLETIN #188

Province of Manitoba Media Bulletin


September 13, 2020


Public health officials are advising of a possible exposure at Daniel McIntyre Collegiate Institute at 720 Alverstone St. in Winnipeg on Wednesday, Sept. 9 in the morning and Thursday Sept. 10 in the afternoon. The individual attended school while asymptomatic. The public health investigation indicates the infection was not acquired at school. The school and cohort are being notified. Additional cleaning of high-touch areas is being undertaken out of an abundance of caution.

The risk is deemed low as physical distancing was maintained while at school and a mask was worn. There are no close contacts connected to the case and public health officials have not advised anyone to self-isolate. Others who were at the site do not need to self-isolate, but should self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19. The site is not being elevated on the Pandemic Response System, given the low risk and lack of close contacts.

Public health officials are also advising of a possible exposure at John Pritchard School at 1490 Henderson Hwy. in Winnipeg on Sept. 8, Sept. 9 and Sept. 10 in both the morning and the afternoon on each day. The individual attended school while asymptomatic. The public health investigation indicates that the infection was not acquired at school. The school and cohort are being notified. Additional cleaning of high-touch areas is being undertaken out of an abundance of caution.

The risk is deemed low as physical distancing was maintained while at school and a mask was worn. There are no close contacts connected to the case and public health officials have not advised anyone to self-isolate. Others who were at the site do not need to self-isolate, but should self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19. The site is not being elevated on the Pandemic Response System, given the low risk and lack of close contacts.

Public health officials strongly encourage all Manitobans to focus on 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.
