Cases and Risk of COVID-19 in Manitoba


The dashboard and graphs are updated daily at 12:30 p.m.



Maps of cases and data from different regions and health districts:








  • Public health officials notify people who have tested positive for COVID-19 as soon as possible.
  • Recovered is based on the assumption that a case is recovered 14 days after the onset of symptoms.

If you have a positive test result, public health officials will call you directly. That is the start of the public health investigation process. In addition, if these public health investigations identify you as a possible close contact, they will call you and provide advice on how to self-monitor for symptoms and self-isolate.

If your test result is negative, it may take longer for you to be advised of your test results. If you have been exposed to COVID-19 through travel or close contact with a case, ensure you self-isolate for 14 days after symptoms develop. If you haven't been exposed to a case or travel, stay home until all your symptoms have been gone for 24 hours. If you are a health care worker, contact Occupational Health to determine a date of return for work.



An active COVID-19 case is deemed recovered when the file is officially closed. Upon closure, that recovered date is entered to the public health information management systems (PHIMS). The time between when a case is considered recovered and when the case is closed varies and could be a number of days. This results in back-dated adjustments to the number of active cases and recovered cases for the date. Note that the total cases stays the same.

 

The positivity rate is the percentage of the number of positive lab tests out of the total number of lab tests performed in the last five days.



Data Notes:

  • The Public Health Information Management System (PHIMS) is a surveillance and reporting tool that brings together positive laboratory results for all notifiable diseases and diseases with case and contact investigation information from the regional health authorities and or responsible organizations. PHIMS contains information on individuals such as demographics (e.g. age, region of residence and sex), risk factors, outcomes and co-infections. Data included in the interactive data application are up-to-date as of 9:30 am of the date of posting.
  • Information such as hospitalizations and ICU admissions are received through enhanced case reporting by provincial regional health authorities. Data included in the interactive data application are up-to-date as of 12:01 a.m. of the date of posting.
