Update: Centre de santé Saint-Boniface and COVID-19
Given the evolving COVID-19 situation, Centre de santé is taking all necessary measures to protect our clients and staff. We continue to follow strict cleaning and disinfecting guidelines recommended by Manitoba Health, Seniors and Active Living (MHSAL), Shared Health Manitoba, as well as the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC).
Clients should wear a mask when they come in for an appointment at Centre de santé. When you arrive, our staff on the ground floor will ask you questions to assess you and check for COVID-19 symptoms.
Note that the Centre will NOT TURN YOU AWAY even if you answer yes to one of the questions.
These steps have been taken to protect clients and staff.
Public health officials require returning travellers from the following locations to self-isolate (quarantine) and self-monitor for symptoms for 14 days after returning to Manitoba:
- Those who have returned from international travel (including to the United States) in the last 14 days;
- Those who have returned from domestic travel in the last 14 days to a location that is not excluded by current provincial Public Health Order from the requirement to self-isolate (Public Health Orders currently exclude locations in: Western Canada, the territories, and Ontario – west of Terrace Bay);
Public health officials also strongly urge anyone who has cold or flu-like symptoms, such as a cough, fever, runny nose, sore throat, headache, or any of the symptoms listed in the screening tool to isolate and get tested for COVID-19. By getting tested, you are helping to keep your family and community healthy.
If you get tested for COVID-19, you should continue to isolate until you have your test results, and you will receive further instructions on isolation at that time.
If you choose to not get tested, you will need to isolate for at least 10 days, and until you no longer have fever for 24 hours and your other symptoms have resolved.
If you have travelled or been exposed to a case, you should continue to self-isolate (quarantine) for the remainder of the 14-day period.

Because Manitoba is at the Critical level (red) on the Pandemic Response System, Centre de santé Saint-Boniface is now providing only services deemed essential. The purpose of this decision is to minimize the transmission of COVID-19 and meet urgent needs in the health care system while some of our staff are reassigned to high priority areas.
Primary Care consultations with physicians, nurse practitioners, or nursing staff
- We will only see clients in person if they have a priority appointment.
- Your healthcare provider can provide virtual consultations by phone or through the TEAMS platform, when appropriate.
- Clients are encouraged to call Centre de santé if they have any health concerns.
The mental health counsellors and social worker
will continue to see clients virtually, if appropriate.
Primary care consultations and wellness programs, either virtual or in person, with dietitians, the exercise specialist, and the pharmacist
are suspended until further notice
Some prescriptions can be renewed by your primary care provider without a visit. Please call your pharmacy and ask them to fax a list of your required medications to your primary care provider.
