A dentist who attended a large industry conference in Vancouver this month is suspected of dying from COVID-19, while several doctors who attended a curling bonspiel in Edmonton have fallen ill.

Chief medical officers from both provinces have now linked 44 novel coronavirus patients to these two events, gatherings that today would be viewed as reckless and even illegal given what the world knows about the highly infectious virus that causes COVID-19.

British Columbia’s officials say they have tracked down and notified all those put at risk. Meanwhile, Alberta’s medical authorities are scrambling to notify more than 100 people who might have been exposed to the virus by attendees of a curling event.

Letter from Anna Chiotti-White, West Hawaii Regional CEO 

It is my sincere honor to have recently begun the  position as Regional CEO of the West Hawai`i Region of Hawaii Health Systems, including Kona Community Hospital (KCH) and Kohala Hospital.  I look forward to continuing the organization’s commitment to delivering quality healthcare to Kona and West Hawai`i residents and visitors.

It was Kona Community Hospital’s (KCH) all-encompassing “Aloha spirit” that really attracted me as I accepted the position as CEO in November 2019.

After seven seasons with the New England Patriots, Duron Harmon is now moving on.

He was traded to the Detroit Lions on Wednesday, and Patriots fans apparently weren’t the only ones surprised. While speaking with Lions team reporter Tori Petry, he told the story of how he learned about the trade.

I was like, ‘Alright, I’ll call him back when this guy finishes taking out my tooth.’ Literally, 10 minutes go by and he calls me again.

“Right after he called me, I saw a message and he was like, ‘Call me back.’ So I finished getting my tooth taken out, jaw is puffy is ever
