Over the last several weeks, we have been closely monitoring the evolving COVID-19 health situation and have been working to ensure that we are keeping the health of RSMIN staff and citizens the focus of every decision we make. The situation has been very fluid and has been changing daily.
As a result, effective March 21, 2020, our staff will be working remotely and our main office shall be closed until advisories and guidelines put out by the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) as well as provincial and municipal public health authorities indicate that it is safe to return to face-to-face business as usual.
We would like to inform the community that during these changes, we are still available for communications online, by email, and by phone, and are operational during normal business hours.
We would like to express our deepest appreciation to the community for doing their best to assist their local health care providers and not overwhelming our shared health resources. And for helping your neighbours and those in need. These trying times, but together we shall prevail.
