Phase 3 of the plan to allow businesses and other services to resume operations, after a pandemic-related government-ordered shutdown that started in March, is expected to start no sooner than June 21.

There have been 300 cases of COVID-19 reported in Manitoba, with no one in hospital and eight active cases on Wednesday, which was the fifth straight day with no new cases in the province. Seven people have died.

Provincial health officials will release new information about the pandemic at a news conference at 1 p.m. Thursday.
