Donna Paliwoda: Worked in a Hospital

Paliwoda stressed the importance of basic public health principles. “Find a way to co-exist [with Covid] and live your best life, because you have to. Number one thing: wash your damn hands,” she stated emphatically. Secondly: “Wear a mask.” [This interview was prior to the public health order by the City of Edmonton mandating mask wearing.] “You come to my hospital and stand beside someone who is taking their last breath. Save your thanks for doctors and nurses who are holding the hands of people who are dying.”
