OTTAWA & CORNWALL, ON –/COMMUNITYWIRE/– Recently 539 residents from Ottawa and Cornwall were polled on the provincial government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Now with the spread of COVID-19 moving from health care settings like long-term care homes to community transmission, the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) will release the poll findings on Tuesday, June 2 at 11 a.m. on a media conference via ZOOM link:


Polling questions focused on Ontario’s preparedness for the pandemic, long-term care homes’ specific measures, and COVID-19 testing. With Ontario health care worker infections hovering around 17 per cent – among the highest in developed economies – questions on increasing standards to protect health care workers and support for manufacturing higher level personal protective equipment like N95 masks, were also posed.
