Good afternoon,

 

The COVID-19 pandemic is a rapidly changing situation at the local, national and international levels. Southern Health-Santé Sud is working with Manitoba Health, Seniors and Active Living (MHSAL) to monitor, gather information, assess risk and respond to the situation with evidence-based action. Our top priority is planning to minimize the impact of COVID-19 on the health care system for the wellbeing of the people in our communities.

 

A Southern Health-Santé Sud COVID-19 dedicated testing site will open in Steinbach on Friday, March 20.
