No new cases of COVID-19 have been identified in Manitoba keeping the province's total at 298, in the Prairie Mountain Health region the total is still 26.
Health officials says only 7 active cases are left, no one is in hospital or intensive care. The number of deaths due to the virus remains at seven, 284 people have recovered.
Meanwhile, as the weather begins to heat up and more people head out to beaches and parks, visitors are reminded to know their limits and to supervise and keep children within arms' reach at all times. Due to COVID-19, the province's life-jacket loaner program will not be operating at this time so individuals should bring their own life jackets/personal flotation devices if they are a non-swimmer.
Health officials also remind Manitobans that standard physical distancing practices should be followed, including two metres or six feet of separation from other beach users outside your family group, and four metres or 12 feet of separation between each group's towels and blankets on the beach to allow for foot traffic to and from the water.
