The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged individuals, businesses, and communities across Algoma. We have worked together during these times of great change and uncertainty in order to adhere to and promote public health guidance.
This year our Public Health Champion awards will honour Algoma residents who have demonstrated exemplary kindness, compassion, and community spirit while helping others overcome the challenges of COVID-19.
We have expanded the categories and will be awarding 4 Public Health Champions for 2020. The four categories are:
- Health Protection Champion
- Mental Health & Wellness Champion
- Re-Open Safely Champion
- Amplifier Champion
“As we navigate this pandemic together, we want to recognize residents and organizations who have courageously helped others during this time,” said Dr. Spruyt, Medical Officer of Health. “Help us shine a light on those making a positive difference in the community.”
The call for nomination runs until November 20, 2020. Nomination forms and descriptions of each Champion are available online or can be filled out and mailed to Algoma Public Health.
