Elizabeth Payne

Elizabeth Payne is a health reporter for The Ottawa Citizen who has been covering COVID-19 full time since her earliest story on the coming global pandemic was published on Jan. 6, 2020. Part of her focus has been on the devastation the pandemic has inflicted on long-term care home residents and staff. Long-term care (LTC) has been an ongoing focus of her work. She wrote about issues in individual LTC homes and the sector long before the pandemic and has received recognition in the past for some of that reporting.
