Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries says there are several COVID-19 cases at the liquor distribution centre in the province.

A spokesperson for MBLL says that since May 18, they have identified six positive COVID-19 cases among 125 employees at the centre.

The province said earlier in the week that it can temporarily close businesses and workplaces when COVID-19 transmission is occurring.

The provincial government was not immediately available for comment.
