Province of Manitoba Media Bulletin


March 22, 2020


Public health officials advise the total number of lab-confirmed positive and probable positive cases in Manitoba remains 19 at this time. Any person concerned about their exposure to or risk of having COVID-19 should call Health Links–Info Santé at 204-788-8200 or toll-free at 1-888-315-9257 to be screened to see if a test is required. The online screening tool is now available in an interactive voice response (IVR) format.  The tool asks callers standard screening questions for COVID-19.  If needed, it directs those who may require a conversation with a health-care professional to Health Links–Info Santé.  People who want to self-screen can call (toll-free) 1-877-308-9038. Eleven community testing sites throughout the province are open.  The public is reminded that a referral to these sites are needed and that they are not walk-in clinics.  Information on locations and hours of operation are available at www.gov.mb.ca/covid19/locations.html. For more information and to access the online screening tool for COVID-19, visit www.manitoba.ca/covid19.
