Vancouver COVID-19 Update Episode March 31, 2020

Episode 6 - March 31

3:00pm - 3:30pm

Something big has happened in Canada. As the effects of COVID-19 close borders and threaten to cut off international drug supplies, people who use drugs may be at greater risk of both overdosing and contracting COVID-19. In response, the federal government has issued exemptions for prescribing controlled substances—something politicians have been quick to call "safe supply."

In this episode of the Vancouver COVID-19 Update, Sam Fenn, Senior Producer of Crackdown Podcast, joins Alex de Boer to explain the nitty gritty of the province's new emergency prescribing guidelines for people who use drugs.
