Laura Tamblyn Watts, CEO of CanAge, a national seniors advocacy organization, pointed out the situation is “not cut and dried.” “Vaccine hesitancy amongst care workers is profound … 20 to 60 per cent we are starting to see in terms of vaccine hesitancy. Still there needs to be a point where this isolation ends and we’re concerned that we’re in a place of inertia,” she said.

Tamblyn Watts and CanAge have given the Ontario government until Tuesday to reveal a plan for long-term care homes.
