Canada. Unions Slam Quebec for Allowing Some COVID-Positive Healthcare Staff to Work

Read Time:30 Seconds

December 29. Healthcare unions are opposing Quebec’s decision to allow some asymptomatic workers infected with COVID-19 to stay on the job, even as an infectious disease specialist warned more Canadian provinces may be forced into similar steps as Omicron surges.

Quebec said on Tuesday it had no choice but to allow some essential healthcare staff to continue working instead of isolating at home after testing positive, to prevent staff shortages from crippling healthcare services.

A number of unions said they are worried the decision will put healthcare networks under further strain, and workers and patients at risk.
