The Northern Health Region's CEO says the health authority is confident that there will be enough medical staff at their health facilities across the region should COVID-19 reach northern Manitoba.

Helga Bryant says staff retention is something the health authority takes into account when planning for potential cases of COVID-19 in the region.


Bryant adds that there are provincial human resources strategies being put in place to help with staffing.


 She explains the COVID-19 testing sites are staffed with their own staff, they just re-deployed and re-assigned folks to work at the testing sites.


Bryant reminds northern Manitobans that the testing sites in Thompson, Flin Flon, and The Pas are open Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., but they do require a referral.


If you fit the criteria for COVID-19 testing flu like symptoms and related travel, call Health Links at 1-888-315-9257.
