Prairie Mountain Health is extending the hours of operation at the Dauphin COVID-19 testing site.

They say the move is in response to higher volumes at the testing site.

The new hours of operation will be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday to Friday. The site closes for lunch between 12:00 p.m. and 12:45 p.m.

The new schedule takes effect Tuesday, August 11.

The COVID testing site in Dauphin is located at the Community Health Services Building at 625  3rd Street, SW.

PMH advises those who arrive for testing should be prepared to wait, and ask that clients remain in the vehicles and do not enter the Community Health Services Building.
