Manitoba Post StaffNews

WINNIPEG – The province says code red restrictions will continue until at least January 22nd.

Dr. Brent Roussin says the current public health orders need to stay in place for another two weeks because COVID-19 cases are on the rise after the holidays.

355 infections and almost 1,900 close contacts can be connected to people gathering over Christmas and New Year’s.

According to Roussin, there were holiday get-togethers involving more than two dozen people.
