Manitoba reports record COVID-19 spike, shuts some businesses

New set of virus restrictions

The Manitoba government is ordering many businesses in the Winnipeg region to close after a record increase in COVID-19 cases.

The province is reporting 480 new COVID-19 cases — more than double the previous daily record.

Starting Monday, bars and restaurants in the Winnipeg region will only be allowed to offer takeout and delivery.

Movie theatres and concert halls will be closed and most retail stores will be limited to 25 per cent capacity.

Elective and non-urgent surgeries in the Winnipeg region are being cancelled, and hospital visits across Manitoba are being suspended.

Case numbers in the province have been rising for several days, which is testing the capacity of intensive care units in hospitals.
