Around the world, frontline health care workers are fighting for us all. The least we can do is keep them safe from COVID-19 by respecting their requests for protective equipment.

Only three provinces – Alberta, Ontario and British Columbia – have agreements guaranteeing risk assessments that respect the clinical and professional judgement of health care workers to determine the level of personal protective equipment they need when caring for suspected, presumed or confirmed COVID-19 patients. These measures ensure workers' requests for PPE, such as an N95 respirator, cannot be unreasonably denied.

Health care workers in every province and territory should have the same right to have their requests for access to protective equipment respected.

Protect our health heroes!  Send a tweet asking premiers of provinces and territories without agreements to guarantee workers' requests for PPE are respected.
