Your community volunteers will be helping self-isolating and vulnerable residents of Central Manitoulin do groceries and errands so that they can comply with self isolation reccomendations and keep our whole community safe and healthy.  Returning travellers coming back into Canada from anywhere in the world should self isolate for a minumum of 14 days. 

Your community is here for you through the Central Manitoulin Communty Helpline, there is no reason to go out in public during the COVID-19 public health situation.

Call 1-888-302-0976 toll free 24/7 if you require help with errands or groceries. The toll free number service uses call forwarding technology and will connect you with a Central Manitoulin Community Helpline Volunteer on duty.
