COVID-19 Community Screening/Testing Sites

An appointment is NOT REQUIRED to attend any of our COVID-19 testing sites. However, at our Selkirk site only, we recommend making an appointment.

Scroll down for locations, regular hours, and other info.


Are you seeking testing for PRE-TRAVEL?


Individuals without symptoms who require a test for the purpose of pre-travel continue to be advised to seek testing at a private facility. For information on where to access testing for outbound travel, please visit: https://www.biomb.ca/covid-19-testing. Read more. 

Manitoba COVID-19 testing sites are designed to offer testing to individuals who are experiencing symptoms or who have been identified as a close contact by public health officials. Testing is also recommended for arriving and returning travellers whether or not they have symptoms.

Individuals without symptoms of COVID-19, including those fully immunized, travelling to or returning to, a First Nations or Indigenous and Northern Relations community can seek testing within three days of travel at no cost. 


Please attend our sites wearing your non-medical mask. You may be provided with medical mask to be worn at all times while in our facilities. A mask is required regardless if you have been vaccinated for COVID-19.

Seeking testing but you're not from Manitoba?

If you don’t reside within Manitoba but would like to get tested, please provide the health card from your province of residence or, if you live out of country, please provide your health insurer’s name and your policy registration number. If you don’t have this information, please contact your provincial health agency or insurance agency to secure it prior to visiting the testing site.

Travelers now require COVID-19 testing

Returning to or visiting Manitoba: All international travellers must be tested for COVID-19 immediately upon arrival in Manitoba, regardless if they are displaying symptoms, and whether they are visiting Manitoba or are returning from out of the country. They should make an appointment with a provincial testing site or visit a drive-thru test site, and indicate at the time of testing that they have been out of the country and share the location of travel. They should also be tested again after seven days, even if still asymptomatic. International travellers need to observe the full 14-day self-isolation period regardless of symptoms and test results. Re-testing is advised if an asymptomatic individual develops symptoms at any point, unless the individual had already tested positive. Individuals who test positive for COVID-19 and have had close contact to an international traveller should identify this contact to public health during the public health investigation and follow-up. 
Departing Manitoba: For individuals requiring COVID-19 PCR test results for travel purposes please visit a testing site established specifically to meet the needs of travellers.
