Public health officials advise two new cases of COVID-19 have been identified as of 9:30 a.m. today. The total number of lab-confirmed positive and probable positive cases in Manitoba is 284. The data also shows: •    five individuals are currently hospitalized, with no individuals in intensive care; •    35 active cases and 242 individuals who have recovered from COVID-19; and •    the number of deaths due to COVID-19 remains at seven. As of yesterday, an additional 522 laboratory tests were performed. This brings the total number of tests performed since early February to 28,294. Public health officials have now increased the number of cases associated with a workplace cluster in the Prairie Mountain Health region to seven. There is no cause for concern, and this type of increase is not unexpected as contact tracing expands and additional testing is conducted. Affected staff and their close contacts are self-isolating, and public health officials are continuing with detailed contact tracing. As this workplace is not related to health care or food supply and does not involve any significant interaction with the general public, no further details about the business will be released at this time. If public health officials believe there is an increased risk to the public, additional information will be provided. Restoring Safe Services:  Manitoba’s Pandemic and Economic Roadmap for Recovery is available at www.gov.mb.ca/covid19/restoring/. Updates have been made to this document to clarify inconsistencies between the plan and the recent public health orders. Businesses with questions about how the new orders apply to them should visit https://engagemb.ca/.
