 Actions Taken :

  • The Ontario government is working together with the province’s education sector to voluntarily place available employees in staffing roles needed at congregate care settings during the COVID-19 outbreak. This initiative is part of the government’s ongoing efforts to redeploy broader public sector workers to areas where they are needed most, such as hospitals, long-term care homes, retirement homes, women’s shelters, and homes serving those with developmental disabilities.
  • The Minister of Health issued a statement about multisystem inflammatory vasculitis, indicating Ontario is taking immediate action to better monitor this emerging issue to effectively respond to the illness and protect Ontario’s children.
  • The Command Table met on Monday; a summary of the discussion is attached.
