One new COVID-19 case from an unknown district reported in Northern Manitoba Sept. 29

The provincial government reported the 16th positive test for COVID-19 in Northern Manitoba among 34 new cases of the virus Sept. 29.

Information on the province’s COVID-19 website shows that the new case is from an unknown district, which could mean that it is a former northern resident now living elsewhere or someone who was tested in Manitoba but actually lives in Saskatchewan.
