The latest from Ottawa Public Health 

In case you missed it 

 

Ambulance

 

Pandemic or otherwise, there’s no putting the brakes on the City of Ottawa’s fleet: The work that maintenance supervisor Jason Scholar and his colleagues do is always essential, but never more so than when we’re in a state of emergency. Jason oversees crews of highly specialized mechanics who service the vehicles our firefighters and paramedics rely on to perform life-saving work.

 

COVID-19 engagement

 

COVID-19: Share your thoughts from home.  We want to hear from you! What changes have you made to protect yourself and your loved ones from COVID-19? How easy it has been for you to receive and understand information from different levels of government? What kinds of supports you have accessed? We want to hear your ideas on how to maintain physical distancing into the future and much more. 

 

Family

 

When parents of three young kids both work in health care, navigating work and home during a pandemic is about taking it one day at a time: Like so many couples with young kids, paramedic Chris Mosher and public health nurse Geneviève Mosher are in the thick of it, trying to balance work and parenting throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. But the nature of their work means they each have a unique perspective on the public health crisis.
