As the landscape of the COVID-19 pandemic continues to change and evolve the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit (WECHU) is committed to ensuring the community receives timely, trusted and credible public health information.
Moving forward, the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit will hold a recorded Media Briefing to take place three times per week on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday mornings at 8:30 a.m., excluding holidays. The weekly COVID-19 Epidemiology Summary will take place on Thursday mornings. Dr. Shanker Nesathurai (Interim Medical Officer of Health) and WECHU Chief Executive Officer Nicole Dupuis will attend to take questions from the media. No media briefings will be held on Tuesdays and Fridays.
In addition, the WECHU will transition the Media Briefings from a YouTube Live broadcast to a recorded session posted to YouTube shortly following the session. Media partners are invited to join the Microsoft Teams meeting on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays at 8:30 a.m.
