A total of 236 people in Manitoba have recovered while six have died.
Six people are currently in hospital, but no one is in intensive care.
The total number of lab tests done in the province since early February is 26,169.
Even though public health restrictions are being eased, the province says people need to still do their part to limit the spread of the virus and stay home as much as possible.
People are being asked to limit travel to only essential trips.
