Stats discussion and interpretation
COVID-19 Resources (currently happening each Wednesday)
“COVID-19 Resources Canada is hosting bilingual, Canada-wide kitchen table-style discussions where anyone living in Canada can get together to talk. This conversation goes beyond vaccines and virology. We’re at a point in the pandemic where restrictions are lifting and some Canadians can return to the places and activities they missed. For some, this is the moment we’ve been waiting for, but for many of us most at risk, this is a difficult period, and is very much not the end of the epidemic. Many Canadians aren’t sure what this return to “normal” means, and how to do so safely. Join us for an open discussion, where we will hear your thoughts and address your questions in a safe and welcoming community, supported by science.”
