Covid-19 Updates and Activities


The Pat Porter Active Living Centre will be closed to all non-essential programming and services until further notice as our region moves into CODE RED.

We are following the public health authority recommendations and encouraging you to stay home as much as possible and make sure we all reduce our contacts. This is for your safety, my safety and the safety of all of our loved ones.

The number of positive cases of Covid-19 are increasing in our area and we need to get those numbers down together. This is a community effort and we can do this!

We will remain open for essential services:

  • – Meals on Wheels in Steinbach and Grunthal will remain open for meal delivery only, please make sure you call by 9:00am if you would like to order a lunch.
  • – If you need help with shopping, mobility equipment or transportation call to make arrangements for us to provide assistance.  
  • – All of our fitness programs will be online via Zoom (see link below) for free. We encourage you to participate, active living is good for both mental and physical health.
  • – If you, or someone you know just needs someone to talk to, please call us 204-320-4600 and one of us will gladly spend some time with you.
  • – Flu clinic will still be happening, please call to book your appointment as this is the best way to make sure you get in and that we can keep everyone safe.

Staff will be at the centre from 9am-4pm if you need support or assistance. Please feel free to call and we can assist you. If you need. We are here for you!

The building will be locked, but there is a doorbell at the front door you can ring if you need us.

We are in this together and we will come out of this together.

Stay safe, stay healthy and stay home!


In an effort to keep you updates and informed on the Covid-19 situation in Manitoba we will be providing you with links to the latest information.
