Provincial health officials announced an outbreak of COVID-19 at Brandon Regional Health Centre Sunday afternoon.

Health officials say the five-day test positivity rate now stands at 2.3 per cent, down from three per cent earlier this week.

The government is reporting 21 new COVID-19 cases, bringing the total to 1,064, including 14 deaths.

Seven of the new cases are in Winnipeg, six in the Southern health region and one is in the Interlake-Eastern region.

Five people are reported being treated for the virus in hospital with one person now in intensive care.

Cases of COVID-19 have been traced to a second-floor unit at the Assiniboine Centre at the Brandon Regional Health Centre.

Preliminary investigations show that eight of the cases announced today are close contacts of previously-announced cases. Additional case investigations are continuing.

The province is listing the second floor of the Assiniboine building at the health centre as critical (red) on the Pandemic Response System.

The province says families and staff have been notified and contact tracing continues, but that risk is low.

They say that while the worker wore personal protective equipment and is self-isolating, the facility is putting additional measures in place to further reduce the risk to residents and staff, including restricting visitation.

Unless recommended by public health, only individuals experiencing COVID-19 symptoms should go for testing.
