On January 25, ONA’s President issued an OPEN LETTER to Premier Ford calling on him to immediately mandate changes to all directives and guidance that COVID-19 is indeed airborne.
There is strong evidence that COVID-19 transmission is airborne, which is why you must take a firm stand to demand the necessary precautions from your employer to protect yourself, your patients/residents/clients and your family. This means you must stay protected by wearing an N95 respirator or better every time you are in contact with a suspected or positive COVID-19 patient, resident or client. If your employer does not provide you with an N95 respirator, please fill in this form to report the employer and the circumstances to ONA so we can follow up. Stay safe and stay protected.
