RNAO applauds members of the Ontario legislature for acting unanimously and in the best interests of residents in long-term care (LTC) homes by voting in favour of Bill 13 on Oct. 29, 2020. RNAO fully supports Bill 13 and urges the government to move this bill quickly through the legislative process so it becomes law.

    COVID-19 swept through long-term care (LTC) homes early, taking the lives of over 5,000 residents across Canada by late May and devastating thousands of family members and loved ones. It continues to break out in LTC homes in many jurisdictions across this country causing preventable deaths and deep grief.
      
    These 5,000-plus deaths represented over 80 per cent of all COVID-19-related deaths in Canada. 

    Flu season is coming.

    Since this year’s flu season coincides with COVID-19, RNAO is committed to keeping you informed with credible resources to help you protect yourself, your family and the communities you serve as health-care providers.
