First rural Manitoba COVID-19 case reported

Three more “presumptive” cases of COVID-19 have been identified in the province, including one in the Interlake.

That brings the total number of Manitoba cases of the novel coronavirus that’s sweeping the globe to seven, the province announced Sunday.

The Interlake case is the first one that’s been logged outside of Winnipeg.

The province will also open another access centre in Thompson Monday, and plans to open more in rural and northern communities this week.

The province’s Healthlinks program has logged more than 1,000 COVID-19-related calls.
