Community surveys (COVID-19)
Public Health Sudbury & Districts has been actively involved with planning, coordinating and responding to the global COVID-19 pandemic. Conducting situational assessments is an important way to inform our agency’s work in this context and allow us to provide our community partners and decision-makers the best advice possible, both during the response and into the future. Gathering information from residents and stakeholders in our service area through surveys is one important approach to inform these situational assessments.
Experiences and impacts of COVID-19 in Sudbury and districts
Public Health Sudbury & Districts conducted an online bilingual community survey to understand how COVID-19 is affecting and impacting residents in Sudbury and districts. The survey was open and advertised on social media over twelve days from April 29, 2020 to May 10, 2020. These results are used to inform public health planning and service coordination.
COVID-19 Safe Behaviours
Between June 19 and June 24, 2020, Public Health Sudbury & Districts conducted a bilingual community survey to better understand which precautions residents of Sudbury & Districts have taken to protect themselves and others from COVID-19. The results from this survey are used by Public Health to inform planning and service coordination.
Public health system evaluation and lessons from the first peak of COVID-19
The Council of Ontario Medical Officers of Health (COMOH) has published a report entitled Public health system evaluation and lessons from the first peak of COVID-19
Public Health Sudbury & Districts participated in the development of this report, which describes the role of the local public health system, provides lessons learned from the first peak of COVID-19, and identifies opportunities to improve as we prepare for the next phase. From supporting a safe return to school to preparing for the upcoming flu season, local public health units continue to maintain public health programming, while leading the response to the COVID-19 pandemic in their communities.
