Dear Minister Elliott and Minister Smith,
Ontario’s most recent COVID-19 modelling, released on April 20, suggests we have reached the pandemic peak. By all accounts this represents a provincial turning point. But gains in slowing the spread of the virus are not equally felt or shared by all. The terms “community spread” and “congregate settings” obscure important differences in how this virus is spreading inequitably, and limit our ability to target scarce community resources where they are most needed.
