COVID-19 April 22 update
April 22, 2020
Dear employees and colleagues:
We started this week with great sadness. Our thoughts are with the families and loved ones of the people affected by the tragic events in Nova Scotia. Our hearts go out to our employees in Nova Scotia, and all Nova Scotians, alike. We are especially sad for those who cannot grieve with their loved ones.
During this difficult time, Canadians are facing many challenges, and, more than ever, we must support each other by using the various tools available to us.
We strongly encourage you to explore the various resources on mental health and COVID-19 for public servants. The purpose of these tools is to maintain your wellness during this developing situation.
We are experiencing unprecedented times, and we must work together to help and continue to serve Canadians from coast to coast to coast. We continue to be impressed by your efforts. Take the time to focus on your physical and mental well-being and know that we are here for you.
Take good care of yourselves.
T. Christine Hogan
Associate Deputy Minister
