COVID-19 #TogetherWeCanDoIt Campaign

This amazing spirit of human solidarity must become even more infectious than the virus itself.
World Health Organization
Beginning Thursday, March 19, 2020 at 7:30 p.m. local time and every evening going forward, RNAO asked everyone – from the doorsteps of their homes or keeping a safe distance – to cheer on the millions of health providers, social service and other essential front-line workers in Ontario, Canada and around the world who are tackling COVID-19.
RNAO has encouraged the public to post their cheering-up activity on social media with the tag @RNAO and hashtags #TogetherWeCanDoIt and #Cheer4HealthWorkers. The response has been incredible.
For more information, please read our media release on the #TogetherWeCanDoIt campaign that was published on March 19.
