The Manitoba government announced it’s investing up to $500,000 to support the development of trails in provincial parks
“Our government is committed to continue building, maintaining and expanding Manitoba’s trail network over the long term in partnership with volunteer and community organizations like Trails Manitoba,” Municipal Relations Minister Rochelle Squires said in an emailed statement Saturday.
“Accessing trails and pathways in a safe manner, while maintaining proper physical distancing, has become a respite during these unprecedented times. Trails can play an important role in our recovery and rebuilding following this pandemic.”
The province says the money will allow for the completion of six trails in Manitoba provincial parks, helping to link the 1,755-kilometre Great Trail in Manitoba including: • South Whiteshell Trail • South Whiteshell Trail – Penniac Bay • Cabin Lake Creek Pedestrian Bridge • Centennial Trail – Hansons Creek Bridge Phase 2 • North Whiteshell emergency repair washout • Spruce Woods Provincial Park
OPH also said Monday the outbreak at the Peter D. Clark long-term care facility ended on July 4, which marked at least 14 days since a resident or staff member last tested positive for the virus.
The outbreak at the city-run long-term care home was first declared on April 28. There were 45 coronavirus cases linked to the Peter D. Clark outbreak, with eight residents dying as a result of complications from COVID-19.
Staff at the home are now starting to schedule outdoor visits between residents and family members.
There is now only one Ottawa institution currently facing an outbreak: the Rideau building at the Perley & Rideau Veterans’ Health Centre.
Eleven people have tested positive for the virus at the long-term care home’s Rideau facility, with one resident dying in connection to COVID-19.
