In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, PARN-Your Community AIDS Resource Network is increasing its harm reduction outreach in #ptbo.

Staff say, drug users may have higher risk for contracting severe cases of COVID-19, due to underlying respiratory illnesses and other health conditions.

PARN's outreach truck is visiting One Roof Community Centre every lunch hour during the COVID-19 outbreak, and there are also plans to do daily outreach at The City of Peterborough's new shelter at the Sport and Wellness Centre.
