Mobilizing Masks for Health Care Providers
Extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures.
We are living in unprecedented times. The spread of COVID-19 has fundamentally changed our lives. As health care workers and grassroots community organizers, we are concerned about the lack of masks and other protective equipment that health care providers need in order to adequately and safely care for ill patients.
We are asking for an impossible goal: 3 million masks in 3 weeks.
The next three weeks are going to be some of the most difficult times our nation has faced. We have over 44,000 physicians and 100,000 nurses in this province of Ontario. Many more allied health workers and custodial staff are also working on the front lines. They all need adequate protection. We know that many private businesses and individuals have masks they can share. We NEED those masks now!
Without you, we cannot stop this pandemic. We need your support to help protect our health care providers so they can protect you.
