COVID-19 Outreach Rapid Response Team (CORRT) – Toronto Public Health (TPH)

Toronto Public Health (TPH) has launched a new temporary COVID-19 Outreach Rapid Response Team (CORRT).

 

The purpose of this team is to:

  • Increase resident awareness of accurate COVID-19 prevention and testing information among disproportionately impacted communities.
  • Develop the health promotion capacity of community agencies to provide COVID-19 prevention messages.
  • Expand resident knowledge of local community resources available to support those who have been most adversely impacted by the pandemic.

 

At this time, Outreach Workers are ready to provide information sessions about COVID-19 to residents in various languages.  They are also able to do direct outreach with residents through information tables in various settings. Additional presentations focused on frontline staff and volunteers are in development. More information will be provided when available. This is a time limited initiative. TPH is currently scheduling presentations and outreach until the end of September.
