The COVID Journals

Health Care Workers Write the Pandemic

This diverse collection is the first book in which a broad range of Canadian health care workers from across the country recount their experiences of the COVID-19 pandemic. Some pieces reflect on the strange pertinence of today's headlines with those of the past; others use humour, art, and the power of narrative to offer a glimpse of how disorienting it is when to help is to put oneself at risk, when care itself is redefined from moment to moment. The COVID Journals is for health care workers and their families, for readers curious about "health care heroes," and for all of us affected by the pandemic.
