Manitoba Launches Plan to Implement Targeted, Rapid Testing for COVID-19 to Protect Manitobans
Manitoba has set out its strategic plan to immediately distribute and begin rapid COVID-19 testing, as part of the province’s comprehensive plan to help protect Manitobans at greatest risk from the virus, Premier Brian Pallister announced today.
“Our government will continue to put the necessary tools and resources in place to help protect Manitobans from COVID-19, based on the direction of our public health experts,” said Pallister. “Now that our initial shipment of these rapid testing units has arrived, we are taking strategic action to put these resources where they can benefit our public health response the most. This plan will support some of Manitoba’s more vulnerable communities and ensure our province is well positioned to respond to the challenges of this virus.”
