The province announced six more COVID-related deaths and 179 new cases of the virus during the weekend.
Monday’s numbers have yet to come in due to the Louis Riel Day holiday, meaning this weekend roundup is restricted to Saturday and Sunday.
The dead include five people from the Winnipeg health region ranging in age from their 80s to 90s, and one man in his 70s from the Interlake-Eastern health region.
New cases include 83 in the Northern health region, followed by 73 in Winnipeg, 16 in Southern Health-Santé Sud and four in both Prairie Mountain Health and Interlake-Eastern.
These numbers are shy one case due to a data correction subtracting one.
Manitoba reached a new milestone during the weekend, having completed more than 500,000 tests for COVID-19 at provincial sites.
Specifically, 500,840 tests have been completed since early February 2020.
These tests have resulted in the discovery of 30,766 lab-confirmed cases of COVID-19 to date. Of these cases, 28,276 have recovered, 1,619 are active and 871 people have died.
"Immediate testing is one of the cornerstones of our COVID-19 response and is absolutely essential in stopping the spread of the virus," Health and Seniors Care Minister Heather Stefanson said in a release.
"The wide availability of our testing centres and fast test result turnaround have helped us keep our COVID-19 curve low in the last few weeks and enabled us to reopen some services and activities that are part of our normal lives."
In Prairie Mountain Health, there are 55 active cases, including 16 people in the Turtle Mountain district, 14 in Brandon, 12 in Asessippi, five in Porcupine Mountain, four in Dauphin, and the balance in other districts.
Provincially, 226 people are in hospital related to COVID-19, of whom 26 are in intensive care.
