Novel Coronavirus COVID-19

The online screening tool is now available in an interactive voice response (IVR) format. CALL 1-877-308-9038

It is not a replacement for Health Links-Info Sante. It is specifically for Manitobans who prefer to complete the screening tool by phone rather than online.

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 1-877-308-9038.

Contact Health Links-Info Santé at 204-788-8200 or 1-888-315-9257 (toll-free) if you're experiencing symptoms of the 2019 novel coronavirus.

Do not call 911 unless it is an emergency.
