We would like to thank Mr Chris Lewis for the trip to our office today to discuss how to implement a public-private COVID-19 testing research partnership in the Windsor-Essex region. Chris is a Member of Parliament for the riding of Essex in Ontario Canada. 3 Key takeaways to share.
1. There will be a 2nd wave somewhere. We need collaboration between private companies, Healthcare Systems and Public Health to prevent a 2nd wave in our region.
2. Employers have a role to play in ensuring staff are safe and healthy, so we can keep society open for business.
3. It is critical to have an integrated testing infrastructure incorporating that both antibody testing and virology testing, that can be conducted in pharmacies, schools and workplaces.
