Manitoba health officials reported no new cases COVID-19 as of Monday.
Manitoba has yet to report a COVID-19 case in July, making Monday the sixth-straight day no new cases have been announced.
Manitoba’s total number of lab-confirmed positive and probable cases of COVID-19 remains at 325.
The province said Monday, Manitoba has 14 active cases of COVID-19, with no one in hospital or intensive care as a result of the virus.
With the ongoing low numbers, health authorities across the province are beginning to restore home-care services.
Health officials say it will be a phased-in return, starting with priority services such as meal preparation and helping clients get dressed.
As of Monday 304 people have recovered from COVID-19 since the first case was reported in March, and seven Manitobans have died.
So far 66,717 tests for the novel coronavirus have been done in Manitoba since early February, with 784 tests done Sunday, 678 tests completed Saturday, and 287 done Friday.

Questions about COVID-19? Here are some things you need to know:
Symptoms can include fever, cough and difficulty breathing — very similar to a cold or flu. Some people can develop a more severe illness. People most at risk of this include older adults and people with severe chronic medical conditions like heart, lung or kidney disease. If you develop symptoms, contact public health authorities.
To prevent the virus from spreading, experts recommend frequent handwashing and coughing into your sleeve. They also recommend minimizing contact with others, staying home as much as possible and maintaining a distance of two metres from other people if you go out. In situations where you can’t keep a safe distance from others, public health officials recommend the use of a non-medical face mask or covering to prevent spreading the respiratory droplets that can carry the virus.
