Yesterday the province received a number of important messages from Premier Rankin and Dr. Strang. One message we wanted to highlight was that of ambulance costs associated with COVID related emergency transportation.

Please remember, if you are in medical distress do not hesitate to call 911 for an ambulance. It was announced today that the ambulance fee will be waived for any COVID related transport.

Please do not hesitate, COVID symptoms can worsen very quickly.

Stay safe.
