Second Wave of COVID-19
The second wave of COVID-19 has resulted in over 55 million cases of COVID-19 worldwide, including over 11 million cases in the United States and over 300,000 cases in Canada. As COVID-19 cases continue to rise, numerous governments have ordered lock downs and mandated that face masks be worn in public places. Thirty-five states – plus the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico – now require people to wear face coverings in public. In Canada, some provinces have mandated similar requirements.
Further Guidance from Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer
On November 15, 2020, Theresa Tam, Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer stated:
“Canada needs a collective effort to support and sustain the public health response through to the end of the pandemic, while balancing the health, social and economic consequences. To do this, we need to retake the lead on COVID-19, by each reducing our close contacts to the best of our ability and employing key public health practices consistently and with precision: stay home/self-isolate if you have any symptoms, maintain physical distancing, wear a face mask as appropriate, and keep up with frequent hand, cough and surface hygiene.”
