Urgent request for Volunteers to Assist with COVID-19 from Dr. Theresa Tam, Chief Public Health Officer
CDHA received a letter from the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) asking to reach out to our members with this call for assistance. There is an urgent need for people to help augment capacity at provincial and territorial levels for surveillance and monitoring of COVID-19 cases. More specifically, they need assistance in detailed case reporting/analysis and contact tracing to help to quickly identify cases and break chains of transmission by isolating and monitoring close contacts.
Anyone interested in contributing to the COVID-19 response should complete the online application form.
