TORONTO, Dec. 22, 2022--Ontario’s doctors wish everyone a happy and healthy holiday season.
Friends, families and colleagues traditionally gather at this time of year and spend more time indoors, in close contact. This is the first holiday season since mandatory COVID-19 public health measures have been lifted, yet COVID is still circulating widely in Ontario along with the flu and RSV.
To help keep yourself, your family and your community well, the Ontario Medical Association has five tips:
“We know that people are eager to spend time with friends and family again after more than two years of pandemic restrictions, but we urge everyone to think about where they will be and who will be there,” said OMA President Dr. Rose Zacharias. “Take precautions that will protect the most vulnerable people you will be with. We all have a part to play in keeping our communities safe and not putting extra pressure on the health-care system.”
The Ontario Medical Association represents Ontario’s 43,000-plus physicians, medical students and retired physicians, advocating for and supporting doctors while strengthening the leadership role of doctors in caring for patients. Our vision is to be the trusted voice in transforming Ontario’s health-care system.
