– Dr. Theresa Tam
Chief Public Health Officer of Canada
People and their employers should be having conversations about working remotely. “Communities, schools and workplaces will also have a role to play in preparing for COVID-19,” she said. “Plans should be put in place to manage possible absences and to ensure business continuity, including flexible work arrangements such as teleworking.”
Deputy Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Howard Njoo said that Canada’s approach to a viral outbreak comes in three phases: containment, preparation and mitigation. Right now, he said, we’re still in the containment phase. But we’re starting to move into preparation.
