Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) bulletin #13

Three additional presumptive positive cases of COVID-19 have been identified in Manitoba.  This brings the number of lab-confirmed positive cases in Manitoba to four and presumptive positive cases to three, for a total of seven cases.

Case five is a man in his 70s.  Case six is a woman in her 70s and at this time, it appears this woman was exposed to the virus through recent travel.  Case seven is a woman in her 50s.  Patient contact and public health investigations are ongoing.

All Manitobans, including health-care providers, are strongly advised to cancel or postpone any non-essential international travel.  In addition, public health officials are recommending all international travellers should self-isolate and self-monitor for symptoms for 14 days after returning to Canada.  Work is underway to develop guidelines for screening of Manitoba health-care workers returning to Canada following international travel.
