If you are unsure, call Health Links:

Winnipeg- 204-788-8200

1-888-315-9257 if out of town. Health Links is a confidential, free health information and referral service for the public staffed by Registered Nurses 24 hours a day. The nurses ask a series of questions about the concern and then direct callers to the level of medical care appropriate for the symptoms.


What you should do:


You can protect yourself and help prevent spreading the virus to others if you:
Do
Wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds, with soap and water or alcohol-based hand rub
Cover your nose and mouth with a disposable tissue or flexed elbow when you cough or sneeze
Avoid close contact (1 meter or 3 feet) with people who are unwell
Stay home and self-isolate from others in the household if you feel unwell
Don't
Touch your eyes, nose, or mouth if your hands are not clean
