Province advises text message alerts now offered to notify when COVID-19 test results are available
Manitoba Health, Seniors and Active Living is advising that starting today, those who have been tested for COVID-19 and provided their cellphone number may receive a text letting them know their test result is available online.
The results of the test are not available in the text message for safety and privacy reasons. The Manitoba government will not use the phone number provided except to notify people about their test result or perform contact tracing, if necessary. If you did not provide your cellphone number to receive a text message notification, results will still be available for you to check online when ready.
