The toll the COVID-19 pandemic has taken on Niagara has been devastating, and the pandemic is not over.
Niagara Health’s staff and physicians have been on the front line since this highly contagious and deadly virus arrived in our region in March 2020.
Our team has worked closely with Acting Medical Officer of Health Dr. Mustafa Hirji and his team at Niagara Region Public Health throughout the pandemic. Caring for our patients and protecting the health and safety of Niagara residents is essential work.
Threatening public health officials who are doing their jobs to keep us safe must be strongly condemned by our community and by provincial and municipal elected officials. This type of behaviour is unacceptable.
