Increasing Covid-19 cases in Manitoba might impact Kivalliq Medical travel

Increasing Covid-19 cases in Manitoba might impact Kivalliq Medical travel  

                                                                                                   

The Department of Health is contacting Kivalliq medical travellers to update them on their medical travel.

An increase in cases of Covid-19 in Manitoba has prompted the province to reduce services, which might impact some medical travel to Winnipeg.

In response, clinical staff will be reviewing all scheduled medical travel out of the Kivalliq region. Patients will be notified by their health centre about their medical travel.

If you have questions regarding your scheduled medical travel please contact your health centre. Please direct inquiries to your health centre and not Kivalliq Inuit Services.
