Presentation on COVID-19 Measuresby Dr. Behn-Smith at May Coalition Meeting 


At our May 13 Coalition meeting, we heard from Dr. Behn-Smith, BC’s Deputy Medical Health Officer and Aboriginal Health Physician Advisor, about the impacts of COVID19 emergency measures on children, youth and their families. Dr. Behn-Smith’s presentation provided helpful information on how COVID19 is affecting the health of children and youth, how agencies and service providers can reduce and weigh risks associated with providing services, and some cautious predictions about next steps in reopening schools and child care centres.
