COVID-19 recovery programs to support farmers Victoria

“During COVID-19, we have seen the incredible importance of having a strong local food economy to put food on the table and keep people working,” said Lana Popham, Minister of Agriculture, Food and Fisheries. “B.C.’s farmers and food producers have stepped up to the challenges of COVID-19, and we are working with them to put us on the path to a strong recovery with investments in new and improved programs that will feed people and strengthen our economy.”

‘BONNIE’, ‘HENRY’, AMONG THE ULTRAVIOLET GERMICIDAL IRRADIATION ROBOTS JOINING FRASER HEALTH’S INFECTION FIGHTING TEAM

Fraser Health has new weapons at our disposal to combat COVID-19 and other infectious diseases, as 14 new Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI) robots are deployed to hospitals across the Fraser Health region to kill viruses and bacteria. The fleet will join two existing robots – fondly known as Phoenix and Haley – in targeting germs that linger on surfaces and can potentially cause infections. Fraser Health staff voted to name two of the newcomers – Bonnie and Henry – after Dr. Bonnie Henry, B.C.’s Provincial Health Officer.
