COVID-19 – Discrimination and Social Stigma

The Novel Coronavirus outbreak can lead to stressful, confusing times. This can create fear and anxiety among us and lead to discrimination and social stigma.

It is important not to discriminate or socially stigmatize against:

  • Persons of a different heritage
  • People who have been out of the country
  • People who have recovered from COVID-19
  • Emergency responders or healthcare professionals

Remember, discrimination and social stigma hurts everyone and will not be tolerated in the workplace.
