Public health officials advise three 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 287. The data also shows:

  • four individuals are currently hospitalized, with one individual in intensive care;

  • 33 active cases and 247 individuals who have recovered from COVID-19; and

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

As of yesterday, an additional 641 laboratory tests were performed. This brings the total number of tests performed since early February to 30,647. The Manitoba government is lifting the one-month supply limit on prescription drugs. Effective May 11, Manitobans who have prescriptions for long-term medications will be able to fill them as per their prescriber’s directions up to a three-month supply, if the drug is not affected by shortages. Limits on prescription refills were imposed on March 19 in order to minimize potential distribution shortages and prevent people from stockpiling medication. Restoring Safe Services:  Manitoba’s Pandemic and Economic Roadmap for Recovery is available at www.gov.mb.ca/covid19/restoring/. Businesses with questions about how the new orders apply to them should visit https://engagemb.ca/.
