Public Health and COVID-19
Join our community today!
PHABC and PlaceSpeak want to hear from you! Our online community “Public Health and COVID-19” is here to bring us together while we have to stay apart. We are releasing new information and resources on the platform every week and always opening new discussion questions to help you connect with other across the province and share how your life has been going during the pandemic. Join us today at placespeak.com/phabccovid19/
This week’s discussion question is all about Premier Horgan and Dr. Bonnie Henry’s announcements that the province will begin to open back up in the coming weeks. We want to know your thoughts on it. How do you feel about the state of emergency being lifted within two weeks? What services would you like to see open first and what protocols do you think need to be put into place to facilitate these services opening up? Check out our Discussion board and let’s start a conversation on how to safely get back to work.
While you’re online check out our newest Poll question; how would you rate your financial status as a result of the pandemic? We know this is a time of uncertainty for many of us across the province. We want you to be able to access all the financial support you can during the pandemic. And that’s why we have also launched a series of infographics in our Resources tab in conjunction with this poll question. If you find you are rating your financial status poorly or mildly please check out the resources, there may be more financial support being offered by the provincial and federal governments than you realize.
Our Resource tab is being added to everyday, new this week include resources on mental health & psychological first aid, support for the homeless, resources for indigenous and remote communities and resources on substance use along with the latest COVID-19 information available from the province and across the country.
Bored at home? Learn something new! Free online classes, workshops and webinars are being added weekly to the Events tab. Take part in a discussion, make some delicious new recipes, try your hand at gardening, and more all while staying safe at home.
Have you created something amazing while in isolation and you want to show it off? Or do you have questions on what is open in your area? Post it all and more to the Noticeboard and check out what other’s have been doing with their spare time. This is the ultimate place to connect to our online community!
