Thanksgiving long weekend

RNAO pays tribute to the thousands of nurses and other health-care workers who are serving Ontarians over this Thanksgiving long weekend.

While many Canadians will celebrate with a Thanksgiving dinner, nurses and other health-care workers will continue to care for persons in hospitals, long-term care homes, their homes and on the streets of this province.

The fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, the opioid crisis, and other conditions continues. We are thankful that nurses – despite the unbearable human resources crisis – continue their work with an unwavering commitment to serve the public.

We ask that you show your gratitude to nurses and other health-care workers by doing your part in the fight against COVID-19. We urge you to participate in our #FullyVaccinated campaign, wear a mask in all indoor public places and maintain physical distancing.

We wish everyone a healthy and safe #Thanksgiving!
