COVID-19 BULLETIN #89

Province of Manitoba Media Bulletin


May 22, 2020


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 292. The data also shows: •    one individual is currently hospitalized, with no individuals in intensive care; •    18 active cases and 267 individuals who have recovered from COVID-19; and •    the number of deaths due to COVID-19 remains at seven. As of yesterday, an additional 873 laboratory tests were performed. This brings the total number of tests performed since early February to 37,272. Effective today, public health orders have been modified to increase the limit on gathering size to no more than 25 people for indoor premises and 50 for outdoor areas, providing social distancing measures are in place. In addition, players, coaches, managers, training staff and medical personnel employed by or affiliated with a professional sports team may attend the team's facilities for the purposes of training and practicing, provided that no members of the public are permitted to enter those facilities. Understanding the patterns and trends of COVID-19 transmission is an important component of Manitoba’s reopening strategy and will inform the gradual lifting of public health restrictions and other elements of the province’s COVID-19 response. Manitoba has developed several options for sentinel testing including introducing voluntary asymptomatic testing for clients in a number of health-care settings to further monitor the presence of COVID-19 in the province. Manitobans who present for non-COVID-19 related care may be offered the testing as part of sentinel surveillance. Testing for COVID-19 is still not recommended for Manitobans who do not have symptoms associated with the virus. People without symptoms should not seek out testing at this time. For up-to-date information on testing criteria and community screening sites, visit www.gov.mb.ca/covid19/locations.html. For more information and to access the online screening tool for COVID-19, visit www.manitoba.ca/covid19.
