Manitoba's chief medical health officer Dr. Brent Roussin and Shared Health’s chief nursing officer Lanette Siragusa shared an update on the most recent numbers of COVID-19 cases in the province and the government's ongoing response to the pandemic on Monday.

During the briefing, it was announced that there are no new cases of the novel coronavirus to report.

Roussin said the province’s count of lab-confirmed positive and probable positive cases remains at 295. The doctor gave more information on two cases reported late last week, which health officials have previously said were related to travel.

Roussin now says both cases were truck drivers who had traveled into the United States. He said both truck drivers had self-isolated quickly after noticing symptoms.

The province enters Phase 2 of its reopening plan on Monday, which will include expanded capacity at childcare centres, allowing limited access to educational facilities, as well as the reopening of community centres and resumption of team sports and recreational activities like theatre and dance.
