COVID-19 Cases by vaccination status

This table contains the latest statistics for new COVID-19 cases by vaccination status in Manitoba.



This table contains the latest statistics for new COVID-19 cases, total active cases, current hospitalizations and current ICU admissions. The data is further broken down by vaccination status, i.e. not vaccinated, partially vaccinated, and fully vaccinated.

Select COVID-19 Outbreaks in Manitoba

The data below shows the most up-to-date COVID-19 information available for current outbreaks in assisted living facilities, correctional institutions, healthcare facilities, personal care homes (PCHs)/long term care facilities (LTCFs), and schools. These locations are monitored because they are considered to be settings in which there is potential for rapid spread of the virus.

As of November 18, 2021, only the total number of cases linked to a school outbreak will be provided, with no breakdown between staff and non-staff. This will help ensure the privacy of individuals while sharing important public health information. As school outbreaks are announced by class/cohort, if the outbreak is small reporting the breakdown of staff/student cases increases the possibility that an individual could be identified.





Data for COVID-19 Variants of Concern


The data for VOCs are updated Tuesday to Saturday at 12:30 pm based on the information extracted from PHIMS.





Cases of COVID-19




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.

COVID-19 Test Positivity Rates and Tests Per Capita


The data is updated biweekly on Wednesdays at 12:30 pm.

This chart shows COVID-19 testing volumes and the five-day test positivity rate among Manitoba’s regional health authorities over the last two weeks.  Test positivity rates can be highly variable, particularly in regions with smaller populations, based on the number of tests conducted and whether there are communities in an active outbreak.
