Province partners with Doctors Manitoba to expand COVID-19 testing capacity
The Manitoba government and Doctors Manitoba are working together to enable COVID-19 testing at community medical clinics by physicians, Health, Seniors and Active Living Minister Cameron Friesen announced today.
“Having community-based doctors’ offices offering COVID-19 testing is another way in which we are boosting screening capacity in Manitoba,” Friesen said. “Our government has expanded screening capacity in the past weeks, adding new sites in Winnipeg and Brandon, expanding the ability for other health-care workers to be deployed to screening sites and reducing wait times for a COVID-19 test. We are pleased to be partnering with Doctors Manitoba to provide Manitobans with yet another option to get tested.”
