A total of 981 Manitobans are still considered as active COVID-19 cases, with 131 people from the province hospitalized due to COVID-19 and 33 people in intensive care. Four of the people hospitalized are northern residents, one of whom is in an intensive care unit.

No new possible public exposures or outbreaks were announced in the north Wednesday.

Within the NHR, 204 active cases remain, including just one in the Flin Flon/Snow Lake/Cranberry Portage/Sherridon health district.
