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.
Here is a complete list of COVID-19 situation reports received in 2020. We have noted a glitch from #202 to #333 (now #318) and are working to update them. If you would like to receive an affected report, please email email@example.com.
