The Chief Public Health Officer of Canada, Dr. Theresa Tam, has put out an urgent request for volunteers to assist with the COVID-19 pandemic:
 
There is an urgent need for people to help augment capacity at provincial and territorial levels for surveillance and monitoring of COVID-19 cases. More specifically, they need assistance in detailed case reporting/analysis and contact tracing to help to quickly identify cases and break chains of transmission by isolating and monitoring close contacts.
 
Anyone interested in contributing to the COVID-19 response should complete the following Government of Canada online application form at https://www.canada.ca/en/public-health/services/diseases/2019-novel-coronavirus-infection/health-professionals.html?topic=tilelink
 
If you have questions, please contact hc.covidvolunteer-benevolecovid.sa@canada.ca directly.
 
Application deadline is April 24, 2020.
