  • Educate and provide Covid-19 specific information
  • Record data in provincial case and contact management IT system

Required Qualifications:

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Experience in health care or social work, preferably in interviewing/counseling patients
  • Demonstrated individual, group, community, and population assessment skills
