Recoveries outnumber COVID-19 cases in Sask., 10 healed, one new case found

The first weekend of July kicked off with a good day on COVID-19 in Manitoba and Saskatchewan. Between both provinces, only one new case of COVID-19 was reported Friday.

That case was reported in far north Saskatchewan, making it 335 total cases of COVID-19 in the region since the start of the pandemic and 796 total cases province-wide.

Along with the announcement of the new case came news of 10 new recoveries from the disease, with six of those coming from the far north region. Forty active cases of COVID-19 - more than half of Saskatchewan's total of 71 active cases - remain in the far north.

Four people in Saskatchewan are in hospital with COVID-19, including three people in intensive care - two in an unnamed northern facility and one in Saskatoon.

Little new information was released by the Manitoba government Friday, but no new cases were announced. No new recoveries were announced either, keeping the province at 16 active cases of COVID-19.

A trio of Air Canada flights have been tied to one of the latest case of COVID-19 in the province - a flight from Winnipeg to Vancouver June 19, another flight from Vancouver to Toronto June 21 and a third flight from Toronto to Winnipeg June 23. Anyone who was on these flights is asked by the province to self-isolate and monitor for symptoms for two weeks.
