Tomorrow is Canada Day, and Manitobans are reminded to continue to practise social distancing and follow public health guidelines for gatherings whether at home, the cottage or camping. Stay home if you feel sick, practise good hand hygiene and cover your cough. If you are travelling, remember to be ‘COVID Careful’ and reduce stops.
Updated information on COVID-19 testing hours for Canada Day is available at www.manitoba.ca/covid19/locations.html/. Outside Winnipeg, people experiencing symptoms consistent with COVID-19 on the holiday are encouraged to visit their nearest urgent care centre or emergency department for testing.
