The Manitoba government will now be reporting COVID-19 cases based on smaller health districts to help Manitobans with more local information.
The province will update case numbers and other information based on 68 health districts instead of five regional health authorities.
Health districts often include several communities and municipalities and follow regional health authority boundaries. There are 15 districts under our Northern Regional Health Authority.
Health Minister Cameron Friesen says this additional information allows Manitobans to stay informed at a more local level. To learn more about the new reporting system based on health districts visit www.manitoba.ca/covid19.
