Manitoba Public Insurance has also announded its Dauphin Service Centre is closing at the end of business today (March 26).
The service centre will then be transitioned to a COVID-19 mobile, drive-thru testing centre. All remaining customer appointments scheduled at this location will be cancelled. Impacted customers will be contacted directly and advised of alternative options.
The Corporation will turn over the facility to Prairie Mountain Health (PMH), which will oversee drive-thru testing. An opening date and process for the handling of tests will be announced by PMH.
Please note that this facility is not yet open and Manitobans SHOULD NOT visit it without being directed to do so.
Crown Services Minister Jeff Wharton says "Manitobans are working together during these very difficult times, I want to thank MPI for its continued community leadership and cooperation with this effort. Working together, we will overcome this challenge stronger than ever before."
"Through cooperation and partnerships, we will all do our part to flatten the COVID-19 curve," MPI's President and CEO Ben Graham said today. "Business will continue in the Parkland region, albeit a bit differently from what our customers are used to. But such efforts are for the greater good."
