This letter from Peter Stephens acknowledges the people who contributed to a successful Covid pop up testing clinic on Big Tancook Island on May 7, 2021
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the following:
Hugh MacKay our MLA for assisting in making this happen.
Dept. of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal, in particular Captain in Charge Jason Keddy, who facilitated and organized the ferry schedule and enabled the ferry to be used as the testing site for Little Tancook residents. As well as the crew for their patience and support.
Martin Hiltz, for helping to organize the Little Tancook end of things.
Angela Henhoeffer, our local REMO representative who did so much to organize the popup test site on both islands and was the coordinator with Public Health.
Dr John Ross from Public Health and his amazing team for coming out to do the tests, including going to people’s homes to perform test.
To amazing volunteers who gave up their day to organize the site, provide transportation and ensure things ran smoothly:
Kat Swift, in particular whose meticulous record keeping and attention to detail helped speed up the testing process.
Food was provided by Ann Westhaver, Lesley Stephens and Pam Baker, who made the food for the test team and refused payment. Thank you!
Tancook Community Rec Center for providing their facilities.
To so many of you for showing up and taking the test. In closing remember that the current rules are still in place:
Social distancing and not socializing as per provincial guidelines, check for updates to keep current. Keep up the good work and stay safe.
On behalf of all BTIERA members.
