Long-term Care Facility Hit by Cockroach Infestation
The problems for residents in the long-term care facility in Mississauga do not seem to end. A couple of months ago, 92 residents, along with 47 staff members, tested COVID-19 positive.  The facility was also in the news when a Toronto man whose mother resides in the facility chained himself to a tree to protest against the deplorable conditions in the facility. Apart from allegations of neglect and poor quality of care of residents, the long-term care establishment is also found to have insect infestations and substandard infection containment practices. During the pandemic, the Armed Forces personnel designated to help out care homes were sickened to witness the cockroach infestation, among other unhygienic practices.

It’s Now Officially Tick Season in Canada
Health agencies across the country are warning people to be careful when they are outside, as it is now officially the tick season in Canada.

For this reason, it is extremely important to be wary of your surroundings, especially if you go to the woods, forests, or somewhere with long grasses, where there are usually all kinds of bugs. As the weather begins to get warmer, ticks are more common all over the country, from Alberta to Ontario.

Be Aware of Tick Season and Lyme Disease This Year
Tick season has officially arrived, and in provinces like Alberta, these bugs are even more rampant. Ticks are mostly found in forests and wooded areas with plenty of trees and greenery, so remember to stay safe if you find yourself in such areas. This year, it’s even more important to be cautious of these tiny bugs since there is an increased risk for Lyme Disease. Ticks are known carriers of this illness, and according to research by the University of Alberta, one in every five people who are bit by ticks are at risk for developing Lyme Disease. Spring and summer are when Lyme Disease-carrying ticks are most commonly found. Apart from ticks, many other bugs are carriers of all kinds of diseases.
