Self-isolation/Reporting Absences FAQ

Monitor yourself and those close to you for symptoms similar to the flu or common cold such as coughing, sneezing, sore throat, fever or difficulty breathing. If you need to self-isolate, you should confirm symptoms with Health Links by calling 204-788-8200 or toll-free 1-888-315-9257, or a medical doctor/health provider.

You may wish to access the Manitoba COVID-19 screening tool posted online by Shared Health Manitoba.

Is self-isolation required if I'm returning from travel?

Follow the Advice for Travelers and Contacts of COVID-19 Cases provided by Manitoba’s provincial medical health officer. Anyone entering Manitoba, including people coming from Western Canada, have to self-isolate for 14 days. If you are a fully immunized domestic traveller and two weeks have passed since your last dose at the time of your arrival, you are exempt from needing to self-isolate (quarantine) under the provincial travel order.

All members of the community returning from a jurisdiction with an active travel health notice from the Government of Canada, whether the travel was business or personal travel, are expected to take reasonable steps to prevent exposing our community to risk.
