COVID-19: Letter to the Government of Alberta

The Alberta Paramedic Association is here for you. We realize that in Healthcare today you have been faced with unprecedented responsibility during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Due to COVID-19, you as a Paramedic may have been asked to perform new duties including but not limited to “treating and referring” patients.

Due to this request, the Alberta Paramedic Association has requested Dr. Deena Hinshaw with The Office of the Chief Medical Officer of Health Government of Alberta to provide further directives pertaining to treating and referring patients who are suspected to have COVID-19 who are in our care regardless of your practice setting.

We value each of you for stepping up to the challenge and helping keep Albertans safe in times when resources are stressed. You are the difference we want to see in our profession and we want to keep you informed as quickly as possible.

Stay Safe and thank you for your service.
