As has happened previously with the death toll, the individual that tested positive was found to not be a resident of Sheboygan County, so their positive test was taken off of the Division of Public Health's count and transferred to their County of residence. That's down from a rate of 5.82 percent for May 16-22 and 7.76 percent for the period of May 9-15.

Meanwhile, Winnipeg's rate sank to 9.2 per cent from 9.9 on Tuesday.

The Island Health region has now recorded 5,140 COVID-19 cases since the start of the pandemic. Nineteen of those people are younger than 40, a Shared Health spokesperson said in an email.

The Department of Health said there are 54 people in hospital being treated for Covid-19, with 18 of those patients in intensive care units.

"For the 50-65s who are in the process of receiving protection from full vaccination, incidence is dropping".
