Received a positive COVID-19 test result?

On January 5, 2022, Manitoba’s Public Health team issued additional direction related to rapid testing, as well as reminders about protocols for self-isolation depending on vaccination status.

  • Individuals who test positive with a Rapid Antigen Test should assume they have COVID-19 and do NOT need to get a follow up PCR test to confirm, unless they fall into a specific high risk group or hold a front line responder/health care position. For full details and the list of who must still get a PCR test: https://www.gov.mb.ca/covid19/testing/testing-eligibility.html
  • As a reminder, there now different isolation timelines for vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals who receive a positive test result. Full details: https://manitoba.ca/covid19/fundamentals/self-isolation.html
    • People who are fully vaccinated and do NOT HAVE symptoms need to isolate for five days from the date of their positive test.
    • People who are fully vaccinated and HAVE symptoms need to isolate for five days from the day their symptoms started or the date of the test, whichever is later. They must also continue to isolate until they no longer have a fever and their other symptoms have been improving over the past 24 hours.
    • People who are NOT fully vaccinated need to isolate for 10 days from the date of their positive test. They must also continue to isolate until they no longer have a fever and their other symptoms have been improving over the past 24 hours.
