Covid Red Crop

The entire Province of Manitoba is currently in code red, with broad restrictions in place to curb the spread the COVID-19. Only essential businesses are allowed to open, and social gatherings are not allowed. Churches and faith-based organizations are also closed.

Stay home,” says Dr. Brent Roussin, the chief provincial health officer. “Do not socialize outside of your household... Our hospitals are nearing capacity, so we need to step up now. The message, again is clear: stay home and only socialize within your household... Don't try to find ways around this.”

On Thursday, the province announced 320 new cases. There are 361 people in hospital, with 55 people in the ICU.

A total of nine new deaths were reported today, bringing the total death toll to 362. Sadly, in the last two days six those deaths have come from our local health districts: two in the RM of Hanover, two in Niverville/Ritchot, and two in Steinbach.

Our local health districts report 498 active cases, of which 406 come from Steinbach and the RM of Hanover. The number of active cases has been dropping the last few days. Steinbach announced 32 new cases today. Additionally, there are four new cases in Niverville/Ritchot, three new case in Tache, and one new case in Hanover.

The province has pledged to significantly step up enforcement of public health orders. Those who are discovered to be breaking the rules are subject to large fines -- for individuals, $1,296, and for businesses, $5,000. A tip line is now available so that individuals can report those who are witnessed breaking public health orders. To report a compliance or enforcement issues, visit: https://forms.gov.mb.ca/covid-tip-line or call 204-945-3744 or 1-866-626-4862 (toll-free) and pressing option three on the call menu.
