A letter of thanks for all of their efforts was sent to Dr. David Williams, Chief Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Barbara Yaffe Associate Chief Medical Officer of Health, Hon. Doug Ford, Premier, Hon. Christine Elliott, Deputy Premier and Minister of Health and the Presidents and CEOs of the Ontario Nurses Association, Registered Nurses Association of Ontario, Ontario Personal Support Workers Association and the Ontario Medical Association.
As a women’s organization, we are very cognizant of the involvement of hundreds of women – nurses and other health care workers, personal support workers and caregivers, administrators, public health officials, emergency services and paramedics, grocery clerks – to deal with this massive situation. We are so thankful for their efforts, and for many putting their own lives in danger. When this is over, how can we possibly thank them. For now, we thank you and appreciate all of your efforts.
