Mayor Ed Holder’s Statement on COVID-19 Death of London Nurse

On behalf of all Londoners, I want to offer my deepest condolences to the friends and family of Brian Beattie, a Registered Nurse who worked at Kensington Village, a long-term care home on Huron St. in London.

According to the Ministry of Health, Brian is the first nurse in Ontario to die of COVID-19. He provided care, comfort, and kindness in the loneliest of moments to residents at Kensington and their families. We honour him, we celebrate him, and we remember him.

As of today, the virus has now claimed 46 lives in London-Middlesex. While it is always heartbreaking to learn that a life has been lost, for this to happen to a nurse - on what was International Nurses Day of all days - somehow makes it even harder.

It also reminds us, in the most poignant of ways, the risks and the sacrifices being made by frontline healthcare workers on a daily basis in an effort to keep the rest of us safe.

There are numerous campaigns meant to show our support and our appreciation: nightly banging of pots and pans, social media hashtags, t-shirts, cards, messages of support drawn in chalk on sidewalks, etc... All of these things matter, and they all have an impact, but the best way we can truly show our appreciation for the work they're doing, and truly honour their sacrifice, is by listening to what they're telling us, and acting on that advice.

That means physical distancing, adhering to hygiene protocols, wearing masks or other forms of PPE when appropriate. We know these things, and we need to commit ourselves to continue doing these things.

That is the best way we can honour the memory of Brian Beattie, and it's also the best way we can ensure the safety of other frontline healthcare workers in the weeks, and months ahead.
