Sask. COVID-19 cases spike once more, Manitoba reports two Winnipeg cases

COVID-19 in Manitoba and Saskatchewan followed familiar patterns Friday - a small bump in Manitoba and a large one in Saskatchewan.

Saskatchewan announced 13 new cases of COVID-19 province-wide June 26, with most of the cases - 10 in total - tied to an ongoing outbreak in Hutterite communities in southwest Saskatchewan. All three remaining reported cases are in the north - two in the north and one in the far north.

The province is now back over a hundred active total cases, now reporting 105 active cases of COVID-19 and 772 total cases from the start of the outbreak. Nine people in Saskatchewan are in hospital, including one person in intensive care in Saskatoon.

Out of the 105 active cases, 58 are in northern Saskatchewan - 54 in the far north, the region that includes Creighton and Saskatchewan communities near Flin Flon and four in the north. No cases in any Saskatchewan community near Flin Flon have been confirmed.

Two new cases of COVID-19 were reported within Manitoba, both within Winnipeg. A man in his 30s and a woman in her 50s were reported to be the people who tested positive. Provincial health officials said the man's case was tied to travel, while the woman in her 50s was infected through being in contact with a previous case of COVID-19.

Manitoba is down to 11 active cases, with no people currently in hospital with confirmed cases of COVID-19. No cases of COVID-19 have been reported in the Northern Health Region (NHR) since April 8.
