Today’s five-day COVID-19 test positivity rate is 32.4 per cent provincially. As of 9:30am on January 26, 2021, 637 new cases of the virus have been identified. The province estimates that actual case numbers are eight to 10 times higher than reported due to the rapid spread of the omicron variant, which has overwhelmed testing capacity and led to many cases going unreported.
The Public Utilities Board (Board) approved the application of Centra Gas Manitoba Inc. (Centra) to decrease the current Primary Gas rate effective February 1, 2022. Primary Gas is sold on a cost recovery basis without markup by Centra to Manitoba customers.
