Active Aging in Manitoba (AAIM) is aware that the Coronavirus (COVID-19) is present in Manitoba and we want to ensure that our staff, volunteers and older adults we support are at minimal risk.
As the situation continues to evolve, AAIM will be monitoring the situation. AAIM will use the information available from Manitoba Health, Seniors and Active Living; the Public Health Agency of Canada and the World Health Organization to guide our decisions regarding our programming. There is an increased risk for individuals: aged 65 and over, with compromised immune systems and/or with underlying medical conditions.
If you are concerned about symptoms that you or a loved one may be experiencing, please contact Health Links at 204-788-8200 or toll-free 1-888-315-9257 to speak to a Health Links registered nurse. Keep up to date with evolving public health recommendations from MB Health: www.gov.mb.ca/health/coronavirus/

DON’T PUT YOUR HEALTH ON HOLD
No matter what’s going on in the world, your regular health concerns don’t stop. Neither does your doctor. Right now, doctors across Manitoba are still available to help with your essential health concerns as we adapt to COVID-19. That help extends to everything from prescriptions and ongoing chronic conditions, to injuries and other illnesses.
Doctors are here to help you. They may provide a phone or video appointment. If an in-person visit is needed, doctor’s offices are taking public health precautions to screen patients, disinfect more frequently and apply social distancing advice in common spaces like waiting rooms. Most importantly, your doctor can help you decide if you should seek care now, or wait. Don’t self-diagnose, or simply assume they’re not available. Just call your doctor first to get advice. They’re ready to help.
