Dear Premier Ford,
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the evidence has become clear: paid sick leave is essential to protecting our province from the catastrophic impacts of unchecked virus transmission, and its toll on marginalized populations.
As you are aware, the COVID-19 response is changing rapidly.
As mentioned earlier this week, the Primary Care COVID-19 Vaccination Action Council* is very active in provincial advocacy efforts. We are meeting regularly with many partners including the Ontario Hospital Association, Public Health, Ontario Medical Association, Ministry of Health staff and Vaccine Task Force representatives.
This year's champions are recognized for going the extra mile to help the community during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Algoma Public Health has officially named this year's Public Health Champions.
Nominations for the awards closed on Nov. 20.
This year, APH wanted its award to recognize those who have gone the extra mile in helping others overcome the challenges of COVID-19. Among the recipients are Mayor Christian Provenzano, the Sault Ste. Marie YMCA, and Algoma University's Student Success and Advancement Teams.
The Canadian Society of Hospital Pharmacists (CSHP) has released a position statement on team-based primary care pharmacists.
