Kory Wilson, Security

Security team member Kory Wilson is greeting and helping screen health centre guests during the COVID-19 outbreak

The COVID-19 pandemic is changing our world and Misericordia Health Centre staff are on the front lines.

Kory Wilson says his job has become “a little more detailed,” since COVID-19.

The 22-year veteran of the Misericordia Health Centre security team is helping screen everyone arriving at the health centre.

“The process is working,” Kory says.

Everyone entering the health centre is asked about their recent travel and if they have any cold/flu symptoms. Depending on their answers, they might be ushered to a side area where a nurse gives a more detailed screening and decides on next steps.

“At the end of the day, we have to keep staff and patients safe,” says Kory.

Although he sees some people are feeling anxious or stressed about COVID-19, most everyone has been understanding and grateful.

“A lot of people, as they’re leaving, say ‘thank you, and stay safe.’”
