Action/Must read

What’s new?

As we start transitioning to a “new normal” this daily COVID-19 update will transition as well. Starting next week, the update will include general hospital news as well as a COVID-19 section. The update will be hosted on a new page on our web site and will be published Tuesday and Friday afternoons. Special editions will go out as needed.

With its broader mandate, these updates will replace our bimonthly staff newsletter, General Express. The goal is to provide timely news in an easily accessible manner.

Resources and Supplies

Staff Support

There is a #fueltheheroes table set up today in the main lobby at 2 p.m., first come first served. Take only what you touch. Please keep you and your colleagues safe – ensure physical distancing. Coffee products (thanks Canada Coffee), KIND energy bars and the Tetley tea infusions (thanks The Workplace Present).

Now that things are getting busier at the hospital
Please continue to self-monitor and watch for symptoms. From the Ministry’s guidance document:

  • All HCWs, volunteers, and staff should be aware of the early signs and symptoms of acute respiratory infection, such as fever, cough, or shortness of breath. Atypical symptoms should be considered as well, especially in children, older persons, and people living with a developmental disability.
  • Acute care settings should instruct all HCWs, volunteers, and staff to self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms at home and not come to work if feeling ill. Those who are experiencing symptoms should report this to the acute care setting.
