The end of the last day of a workweek is often time to sit back, relax and begin to unwind after a demanding week. For those working in health care, the end of our workweek can vary, but the same feeling exists. Whether today is your Friday of the workweek or if it is coming in the next few days, our request to each of you is to take the time to unplug and reflect on how far we have come together. While it may not always feel like it, we are making a difference.

Today’s update begins with the news we knew would occur some day, but the news lands just as hard as if we didn’t know it would occur. Two Island Health residents with confirmed COVID-19 – one in their 80s and the other in their 90s – passed away in hospital. On behalf of Island Health, we want to pass along our condolences to the family and friends of the two individuals. To all members of the Island Health family who provided care to these individuals, and supported their families, we are sharing in your thoughts and emotions as well. Please know all of us are by your side, with our appreciation for the compassionate care you provided to these individuals at the end of their lives
