June 20 2021 COVID-19 report
Dear Colleagues: Welcome to our Sunday, June 20 report during this sixteenth month of COVID-19 in Ontario. You can find earlier update reports here, including thematic pieces in Doris’ COVID-19 Blog. And, for the many resources RNAO offers on COVID-19, please visit the COVID-19 Portal where you will also find RNAO media hits and releases on the pandemic here. Daily Situational Reports from Ontario's MOH EOC can be found here. As always, feel free to share this report and links with anyone interested. Scroll down for policy updates for all to act on & must join events.
Ontario is doing very well with vaccination rollout, but we cannot bring our guard down. Epidemiologist David Fisman reports that Ontario has an R for the Delta variant firmly above 1 again, even as the R for earlier variants of concern falls away, and the expected decline in cases has ceased. In short, the Delta variant continues to spread and we urge the premier not to advance the reopening to Step 2 before the originally scheduled date. As Fisman says, Alberta's aggressive approach to ending restrictions will probably end (predictably) in catastrophe and is worth learning from. Please RT our message to the Premier.
In today’s report we share: (1) a reminder to answer the international survey on nurses’ wellbeing; (2) a reminder to vote, for RNAO members; (3) the final call for the RNAO AGM!; (4) how to address misinformation in social media and (5) tips from RNAO to build your Twitter presence.
Reminder to answer our survey on nurses’ wellbeing (for RNAO members and non-members)
RNAO is working in partnership with researchers from the Rosemary Bryant AO Research Centre (RBRC) at the University of South Australia (UniSA) and with Nursing Now to deliver an international survey of nurses on COVID-19 and wellbeing.
COVID-19 has had a profound impact on the whole community – including nurses and other health professionals – in Ontario, Canada and internationally. We thank RNs, RPN/LPNs, and NPs – RNAO members and non-members – who have already responded to this international survey. If you have not yet done so, please consider the impact it will have. The aim of this survey is to find out how nurses are feeling about their work, and how they have been impacted by COVID-19, across a comparison of 150 countries. It will allow RNAO and the international community to learn what we have in common, and what is different, in terms of nurses’ wellbeing and the crisis in nursing human resources.
Please go here to answer.

Let’s flatten the infodemic curve
Addressing misinformation and disinformation in social media -- the distinction between the two is important and its explained below -- is crucial to ending the pandemic and pursuing healthy public policy. The following is an article from the World Health Organization (available here), which, in turn, adapted it from an article by Siouxsie Wiles & Toby Morris that appeared in The Spinoff (available here). If you want to read the WHO article with all the graphics, go here. I am including the WHO article under creative commons.
We are all being exposed to a huge amount of COVID-19 information on a daily basis, and not all of it is reliable. Here are some tips for telling the difference and stopping the spread of misinformation.
Due to COVID-19, most of us have a new word in our vocabulary: epidemiology. It is the branch of medical science that deals with the ways diseases are transmitted and can be controlled in a population. Now it is time to learn another new word: infodemiology.
As humans, we are a curious and innovative species. We want to understand the world around us and stay up to date on the challenges we face and how to overcome them. One of the ways we do this is by seeking out and sharing information – lots of it. Even scientists around the world are working hard to keep up with the thousands of studies that have come out since COVID-19 appeared.
But it is not only scientific studies. There are also official communications from governments and health agencies around the world. Then there are news articles and opinion pieces, and messages from vloggers, bloggers, podcasters and social media influencers. You may also see information shared by friends and family on social media or messaging apps.
All of this is called the infodemic: a flood of information on the COVID-19 pandemic. Infodemiology is the study of that information and how to manage it.
Here are seven steps you can take to navigate this wave of information and decide who and what to trust:
1. Assess the source
Who shared the information with you and where did they get it from? Even if it is friends or family, you still need to vet their source. To check for fake social media accounts, look at how long profiles have been active, their number of followers and their most recent posts. For websites, check the “About Us” and “Contact Us” pages to look for background information and legitimate contact details.
When it comes to images or videos, make it a habit to verify their authenticity. For images, you can use reverse image search tools provided by Google and TinEye. For videos, you can use Amnesty International's YouTube DatViewer, which extracts thumbnails that you can enter into reverse image search tools.
Other clues that a source may be unreliable or inaccurate include unprofessional visual design, poor spelling and grammar, or excessive use of all caps or exclamation points.
2. Go beyond headlines
Headlines may be intentionally sensational or provocative to get high numbers of clicks. Read more than just the headline of an article – go further and look at the entire story. Search more widely than social media for information – look at print sources such as newspapers and magazines, and digital sources such as podcasts and online news sites. Diversifying your sources allows you to get a better picture of what is or is not trustworthy.
3. Identify the author
Search the author’s name online to see if they are real or credible.
4. Check the date
When you come across information, ask yourself these questions: Is this a recent story? Is it up to date and relevant to current events? Has a headline, image or statistic been used out of context?
5. Examine the supporting evidence
Credible stories back up their claims with facts – for example, quotes from experts or links to statistics or studies. Verify that experts are reliable and that links actually support the story
6. Check your biases
We all have biases, and these factor into how we view what’s happening around us. Evaluate your own biases and why you may have been drawn to a particular headline or story. What is your interpretation of it? Why did you react to it that way? Does it challenge your assumptions or tell you what you want to hear? What did you learn about yourself from your interpretation or reaction?
7. Turn to fact-checkers
When in doubt, consult trusted fact-checking organizations, such as the International Fact-Checking Network and global news outlets focused on debunking misinformation, including the Associated Press and Reuters.
Information, misinformation and disinformation
Information is what we call things that are accurate to the best of our current knowledge. For instance, COVID-19 stands for coronavirus disease 2019 and is caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. One of the difficulties with any new pathogen, like this coronavirus, is that information changes over time as we learn more about the science.
Misinformation, on the other hand, is false information. Importantly, it is false information that was not created with the intention of hurting others. Misinformation is often started by someone who genuinely wants to understand a topic and cares about keeping other people safe and well. It is then shared by others who feel the same. Everyone believes they are sharing good information – but unfortunately, they are not. And depending on what is being shared, the misinformation can turn out to be quite harmful.
At the other end of the spectrum is disinformation. Unlike misinformation, this is false information created with the intention of profiting from it or causing harm. That harm could be to a person, a group of people, an organization or even a country. Disinformation generally serves some agenda and can be dangerous. During this pandemic, we are seeing it used to try to erode our trust in each other and in our government and public institutions.
How to navigate misinformation and disinformation
It helps to think of misinformation and disinformation spreading in the same way as viruses. One person might share fake news with their friends and family, and then a handful of them share it with more of their friends and family, and before you know it, potentially harmful or dangerous information is taking over everyone’s newsfeed.
But just as we can protect against COVID-19 with hand washing, physical distancing and masks, we can slow down the spread of misinformation and disinformation by practising some information hygiene. Before sharing something, ask yourself these questions:
How does this make me feel?
Why am I sharing this?
How do I know if it’s true?
Where did it come from?
Whose agenda might I be supporting by sharing it?
If you know something is false, or if it makes you angry, don’t share it to debunk it or make fun of it. That just spreads the misinformation or disinformation further. Learn more about how you can report misinformation online.
Good places to go for reliable information are the websites of your national Ministry of Health or the World Health Organization. Remember, though: information will change as we learn more about the virus.
Building your Twitter presence: Here are tips from RNAO
Social media plays a central role in addressing the pandemic and related issues, including social and environmental determinants of health and assuring health for all. RNAO is committed to building a positive and forceful media presence. We have addressed vaccine hesitancy and the role of social media and expressed concern about the harms of disinformation.
RNAO is now issuing a call for action to engage members and followers in extensive use of social media, in particular Twitter. Twitter is the most effective social media platform to influence journalists, politicians and decision-makers. The following article, prepared by RNAO’s communications team, provides tips and guidance that help build your Twitter presence.
It’s vital for nurses to be active and vocal on social media, especially Twitter, to drive change and facilitate discussion on topics related to nursing, health, and health care.
RNAO has consistently grown its social media presence over the past few years, knowing that when used strategically and effectively, it can amplify nurses’ voices and mobilize action on key advocacy areas. In the past year alone, RNAO’s social following grew 45% on Instagram, 11% on Twitter and 5% on Facebook due to active engagement and strategic messaging. The main purpose of social media is to inform, engage and inspire followers, and there are many ways to do so effectively.
GOALS: Your goals for using social media are fluid and can change as your following and engagement grow. Some of RNAO’s social media goals that you can take and use for your own usage include:
- Establishing and maintaining our voice
- Keeping members up-to-date on key happenings (i.e. events, nursing and health news)
- Sparking interest among key audiences
- Engaging with members & with the communities in which we exist
- Reinforcing RNAO's mission, vision & values
- Driving traffic to other RNAO resources (i.e. website, documents)
We want to emphasize the words “audiences” and “community” because these are integral to your understanding of social media strategy.
Every social media user has audiences – the groups of people that follow you and engage with your content. For example, RNAO’s many audiences include its members, journalists, politicians, partner organizations, public health units, members of the public and academic institutions to name a few. It’s important to identify your audiences and keep them in mind whenever you post to ensure your posts are meaningful and speaking to the correct group(s).
RNAO is also active within many communities on social media, both locally and internationally. Its communities are nursing and health care, so it’s important to be part of those conversations by listening and responding to ensure its voice is heard among the other “noise” on social media. Being active on social media doesn’t mean logging in and posting once, then logging off. It means constantly monitoring what your communities are discussing and engaging, when necessary, by liking, responding, retweeting or using relevant hashtags.
Before you build your social media audience, you must first build your account. If you’re looking to create a Twitter account, or if you want to improve your current account, here are a couple of tips to consider:
- Updated profile photo: Choose a profile photo that best represents who you are. Although most personal Twitter users opt to have their own face as the profile photo, it doesn’t have to be. It can also be a symbol or a graphic.
- Relevant bio: Ensure that your bio is to date and provides other Twitter users with a quick snapshot of who you are. Your bio can include your occupation, relevant hashtags, your hobbies, etc. You may want to consider including “Tweets are my own” in your bio. This is a way to separate your personal thoughts and opinions from an organization you may work for.
- Appropriate Twitter name & handle: Your Twitter handle is one of the first aspects that other users will see on their Twitter feed. Ensure that the name you choose for your Twitter name fits you and what you represent.
- Follow other users: Following like-minded Twitter users will build your audience and help you find the topics that are trending within nursing and health care.
So, you have an account, now what? Here are some key tips on how to be effective:
- 80/20 rule: 80% of your posts should be about the communities in which you exist and building others up, and 20% should be self-promotion. Find the balance that works best for your own goals.
- Multimedia elements: Incorporate photos, videos, links, hashtags in your posts to maximize their reach and spark interest among your diverse following
- Constant monitoring (listen & respond)
- Stay informed and share factual & credible information
- Quality over quantity: Include multimedia elements, credible information and clear messaging to ensure your post is as effective as possible and doesn’t strictly add to the noise on social
- Be familiar with the social platform: Adapt your messaging for whichever social media platform you’re posting to (i.e., on Instagram, lead with visuals)
What of these tips boil down to are the following three questions:
- What does your audience want to know?
- In what ways can you inform them?
- What do you want them to do after receiving the information?
Addressing these three questions before posting will help to ensure your posts are as meaningful and effective as possible to maximize your posts’ reach and amplify your voice in the communities in which you exist. #NursesVoicesMatter
We hope you enjoy your posting and invite you to send us addition tips to Rene Dunkley <email@example.com>

Staying in touch
Keeping in touch remains important as we face the pandemic and other challenges in Ontario, in Canada and elsewhere. Feeling that we are part of a community and that we have each other’s backs helps us get through these challenges, becoming better people in the process. We are eager to hear how we, at RNAO, can best support you. Send us your questions, comments, and challenges. Recommend ideas for articles and webinars. Write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and copy my executive assistant, Peta-Gay (PG) Batten at email@example.com. RNAO’s Board of Directors and our entire staff want you to know: WE ARE HERE FOR YOU!
Thank you for being there for your community – everywhere and in all roles! Together, in solidarity, we are strong and resilient. In Canada we see hope at the end of this long pandemic tunnel. Vaccines arrive in large quantities and the rollout is speeding even more. We must not forget, however, about our privilege. Canada has purchased more vaccines than what it needs, while 9 out 10 countries have almost nothing. Like in other challenges we face, such as racism, Islamophobia, and other forms of discrimination, we are not safe until everyone is safe. Vaccines for all – literally for all, across the world – must guide policy in the upcoming 12 months. Let’s learn from the 16-month pandemic and take real action to build a better world.
To everyone – THANK YOU! Please take care of yourself and know that RNAO always stands by you!
As we have said before – and everyday becomes truer: The silver lining of COVID-19: Coming together and working as one people – for the good of all!
