From the Director

Happy Monday! Hope everyone’s weekend went well. Please check out the jam-packed with information email from the Chiefs on Friday if you haven’t already done so -  lots of COVID-related information and more. Please note that the mask ordinance goes back into effect in Durham today at 5pm. Things haven’t changed here in the hospitals and clinics, but continue to be mindful and vigilant when you are out and about.

Please watch your emails and schedules for your ITE dates (JARs and SARs who registered). Any questions, ask Lynsey!
