The identity or home community of the latest COVID-19 was not released by the province, nor was any additional information about  the new cases found in the far north or north.

A silver lining could be found in the number of reported recoveries found in Saskatchewan in the past two days. In total, 17 people who had previously had COVID-19 were reported as having recovered from the disease. Saskatchewan currently has 80 active cases of COVID-19, with most in northern regions - 46 in the far north, eight in the north. No cases have been confirmed in Saskatchewan communities near Flin Flon.

Six people are hospitalized with COVID-19 in Saskatchewan. Three people are intensive care, with two in Saskatoon and one in an unidentified north region facility.

Manitoba seems to be all quiet on the COVID-19 front. No new cases of COVID-19 were reported in Manitoba July 2, with 16 active cases remaining in the province. No Manitobans are currently hospitalized with COVID-19. No cases in northern Manitoba have been reported since April 8.
