Manitoba education minister, deputy public health officer to hold COVID-19 update Saturday

Manitoba’s education minister Cliff Cullen and deputy chief provincial public health officer Dr. Jazz Atwal, are expected to host a joint news conference Saturday afternoon.

The latest  COVID-19 address is being held over the phone for media outlets only at 1 p.m.

In Saturday’s COVID-19 update, the province says the Garden Valley and Red River Valley School Districts will shift to remote learning on May 18th until May 30th.

This comes only six days after another rare weekend press conference, where the province announced all schools in Winnipeg and Brandon would shift to remote learning effective Wednesday, May 12.

The change to remote learning is expected to last until at least May 30.
