The province says there are over 1000 COVID-19 recoveries in Manitoba.
There are nine cases in the Winnipeg health region, two new cases in the Southern Health–Santé Sud health region, two cases in the Prairie Mountain Health region, and two cases in Interlake–Eastern Health region.
"A case was removed as it was determined to be from out of province and a second case was removed due to duplication. This brings the total net new cases today to 13 and the number of lab-confirmed cases in Manitoba to 1,378," the province says in a statement.
There are 1002 recoveries as of Thursday morning.
On Wednesday, the first case of COVID-19 in a school was identified by Public Health. The student went to school on Tuesday sometime after taking a test for COVID-19. They were not a close contact of a case of COVID-19. They were not advised to self-isolate after taking the test.
"We know that in this case, the individual did everything they were supposed to do," Roussin says. "We knew we would see cases in school."
As it was the first day of classes, the transmission of this case was not from school.
Roussin anticipates school to have more cases in the future.
Public health officials are advising of two potential exposure to COVID-19 may have occurred:
• Sept. 1 to 3 at Lilac Resort (Trans-Canada Highway, Ste. Anne); and
• Sept. 5, Air Canada flight AC 295 departing from Winnipeg to Vancouver (rows 19 to 25).
There are 11 people in the hospital and three people in intensive care. The number of deaths remains at 16 in Manitoba.
The province says that beginning on Friday, Winnipeg's COVID-19 reporting will be separated into 12 districts.
