With the provincial case count up over fifty percent over the weekend showing community transmission is becoming more widespread, NDP Leader Ryan Meili is calling on the province to act aggressively to get ahead of the spread of COVID-19 by expanding testing and tracing in the province.

“We can and must act quickly and aggressively to get ahead of the spread of COVID-19,” said Meili. “Now is not the time to let up -- we should be testing everyone who has the symptoms and rapidly scaling up contact tracing to contain the spread of the virus.”

Meili also called on the provincial government to scale-up communication with the public regarding the measures required by launching an aggressive public advocacy campaign. 

“People are anxious and trying hard to protect their families and their communities right now,” said Meili. “But in order for them to be taking the right steps, they need clear, up-to-date information from government.”
