Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic health care providers working on the front lines have received recognition, random acts of kindness and the appreciation of their communities. And deservedly so! Across Manitoba, thousands of health care workers stepped forward in the spring of 2020 to help, to provide care and to support their communities at a time when most citizens were being asked to stay home to stay safe.
Protecting these valuable physicians, nurses, allied health providers, health care aides, cleaners and support staff, among many other valued staff, is largely the responsibility of an unsung group of health care heroes, whose work behind the scenes is vital to the continued safe provision of care at all times and in all settings but which is of fundamental importance during the fight against COVID-19.
