UPDATED Last updated: April 3, 2020

You may be tested for COVID-19 if you have respiratory symptoms and any of the following apply to you:

  • travel outside Manitoba in the past 14 days*
  • close contact with a confirmed case**
  • health care workers
  • lab workers who have worked with COVID-19 tests
  • individuals who live/work in the north, a remote or isolated community, or congregate setting, such as a correctional facility, shelter, long-term care or residential facility, or a remote work camp

Individuals with mild symptoms of a respiratory illness (e.g., fever, cough, runny nose, sore throat) who are not being tested for COVID-19, are advised to self-isolate for 14 days from the day symptoms start, provided they no longer have a fever and other symptoms have improved. This means staying home and keeping away from others. For more information about caring for yourself at home and self-isolating

Not everyone needs to be tested for COVID-19 because it will not change their care or treatment plan. If your symptoms worsen (e.g., shortness of breath, breathing difficulties), or if you have questions or concerns, please call Health Links - Info Santé.

Individuals who are directed by Health Links-Info Santé to be tested for COVID-19 will be asked to visit a community screening location. Community screening locations include:

Note: decisions related to testing for COVID-19 are based on current and evolving public health evidence and are NOT based on client and/or employer requests. Testing advice and recommendations may change as the outbreak continues to evolve. Individuals who are NOT experiencing signs/symptoms of COVID-19 will NOT be tested. In situations where COVID-19 testing is not recommended, a clearance or exclusion letter will NOT be issued for employees to provide to employers. Should you require a letter outlining why testing for COVID-19 is not occurring, click here.

Community screening locations will not accept walk-in patients.

Those who require screening, assessment and/or testing after hours, will still be directed by Health Links - Info Santé to urgent care sites and emergency departments.
