Each Friday, AB MDs receive an email from the AHS CMO.

It’s fantastic. It keeps us informed (if we choose to read it).

This = significant number of the province’s MDs are experiencing long covid. In addition to the ill-advised med school class size reductions in the ‘90s AND no preparation at all for the retirement of baby boomers AND no insight into how many MDs are reducing their hours …
Well. It’s bad news.

1/4 When it comes to peaceful protest during #COVID19, virtual protest is the safest bet. First consider the risks to yourself, your family & community. Follow #publichealth advice and let that be your guide to safe & peaceful protest. #TogetherApart

1/3 #COVID19 key concerns in 🇨🇦: nationally epidemic growth continues to slow but outbreaks remain in long term care, shelters, workplaces, etc. Most worrying is community spread in & around hotspots, e.g. greater Toronto & Montreal areas.
2/3 Outbreaks represent closed settings where #publichealth measures can be targeted to #StoptheSpread, however community transmission presents additional challenges for #TestandTrace to control spread at the population level.
3/3 This is where everyone’s TIRELESS EFFORTS ARE NEEDED #DoYourPart:

2/3 With #COVID19, OUTSIDE spaces ARE BETTER than inside (keep 2metres #PhysicalDistancing), SMALL BUBBLES of core contacts ARE BETTER than big, and #CleanYourHands & #CoughEtiquette are needed always & everywhere!

1/4 Get outside on SUNdays by going OUT SMART: keep UP with tried & true measures that we know can keep #COVID19 spread DOWN: #PhysicalDistancing #Handwashing #CleanYourHands #CoughEtiquette #StayHomeIfSick
2/4 BUT, going OUT SMART does NOT include going out when you are sick. If you are experiencing even mild symptoms of #COVID19 the RIGHT THING TO DO is #StayHomeIfSick & stay away from others to #StoptheSpread. #DoYourPart #ProtecttheVulnerable
3/4 In areas where #COVID19 activity may still be occurring, wearing a non-medical mask or face covering when you can’t keep a 2-metre physical distance can provide an additional layer of protection to help prevent spread.
