The Manitoba government says a rapid COVID-19 testing centre is now taking appointments for all teachers and other school staff who work with students.

The Fast Pass centre is in Winnipeg and promises same-day results.

Eligible clients must be either symptomatic or live with someone who is, or be identified as a close contact through an exposure at school.

Manitoba reported three additional deaths of people with COVID-19 yesterday as well as 216 new cases of the virus.
