Brampton Mayor Patrick Brown took to Twitter Tuesday morning to thank a few of the nurses who played such a big part in the fight against COVID-19.
Brown was joined by Charmaine Williams, city councillor for wards 7 and 8 at the Hilton Garden Inn, which was has been used as an isolation centre for COVID-19 positive patients.
Brown was recognizing the contributions of, “some pandemic heroes. Nurses who are caring for COVID positive patients. We’re here today simply to say ‘Thank you’.”
During the height of the pandemic, there were up to 80 patients at the facility, more than most hospitals in the province.
“These are the faces of COVID hereos, of pandemic heroes.”
Brown pointed out that when their work started, many of the nurses weren’t even vaccinated as rules at the time insisted health care workers be in a hospital setting.
“(These nurses) helped keep the pandemic under control in Peel at great risk to their own health.”
Thank You. 🙏
These nurses managed the Hilton Garden Inn #COVID19 isolation centre over the last year in Brampton.
They had over 80 covid positive patients at one point which is more than most hospitals in Ontario
