Leaders of a First Nation are demanding to speak with Ontario Provincial Police Commissioner Thomas Carrique over officers’ conduct and other issues, heightened by complaints against a sergeant who allegedly left an Indigenous man on the side of a remote highway in 2019.
The weather is changing and the landscape of respiratory viruses across the province is also changing. This fall will be a more complex respiratory illness season with multiple respiratory viruses circulating alongside COVID-19. Influenza A cases have been reported in Ontario Region. In addition, respiratory syncytial virus activity (RSV) is circulating in Canada above expected levels impacting the pediatric population. Furthermore, COVID-19 activity continues in the province, and we expect to see ongoing COVID-19 activity this fall with the continued presence of highly transmissible Omicron variants. An increase in activity of multiple respiratory viruses creates a more complex respiratory illness season and has the potential to further stretch the health system.
Urgent and non-urgent medical services of the nurses are obtained by presenting yourself to the receptionist at the Health Centre during the following times:
Mondays 1 – 4 pm
Tuesdays 8:30am – 4:30 pm (with lunch from 12-1pm)
Wednesdays 8:30am – 4:30 pm (with lunch from 12-1pm)
Thursdays 8:30am – 4:30 pm (with lunch from 12-1pm)
Fridays 8:30am – Noon
After hours URGENT CARE ONLY is accessed by attending the Health Centre between 6pm – 6am and speaking with the guard who will contact the On-Call Duty Nurse. If you need urgent medical care and you go the Health Centre, and find that there is the note on the window indicating that the Guard is on a break/lunch, then you should call the emergency response line 1-888-310-1122. The dispatcher will, in turn, then contact any/all local personnel needed in KZA (including the nurses) to address your emergency and potential need for URGENT care.
Nurses are contracted to respond after hours to only URGENT EMERGENCY cases routed through the proper response methods.
Residents and visitors are reminded that the KZA- GBFN Health Centre is NOT a 24 hour/day ISC – Health Canada program service centre.
NURSES ADVISE THAT THEY CAN NOT AND WILL NOT ANSWER KNOCKS ON THEIR RESIDENCE DOORS AT NIGHT due to the potential physical and medical safety risks posed to them in doing so. Please respect this schedule and recognize that the valuable people who are responsible for daytime health services are provided their respite/sleep time that is assured through their Collective Bargaining Agreement.
