We are operating COVID-19 isolation suites so that individuals experiencing homelessness can self-isolate and self-monitor while awaiting a COVID-19 test result, or so they have a safe place to recover from COVID-19. Individuals are referred to the isolation site through the healthcare system, not through self-referral. If you are an individual experiencing homelessness and you are concerned you’ve been exposed to COVID-19, please contact Health Links at 204-788-8200.
