Two Winnipeg lawyers test positive for COVID-19


Two defense lawyers in Winnipeg have tested positive for COVID-19, the Criminal Defense Lawyers Association of Manitoba confirmed on Tuesday evening.Gerri Wiebe said she did not know how the lawyers acquired the virus but informed her in case anyone in the defense bar was affected.

She said she had no information to suggest they contracted her at the Winnipeg courthouse.

She said lawyers have been proactive and have reached out to all potential close contacts to let them know so they can monitor themselves or get tested.

Masks have been mandatory at the Winnipeg courthouse since the start of September, after an employee tested positive for COVID-19.
