The AHT Mobile Healing has been developed as a response to the COVID-19 virus. The Mobile’s central roles are to perform COVID-19 testing for Indigenous community members with an emphasis on those who are homeless and secondly, to provide rapid and long-term housing options. The team consists of a Registered Nurse Extended Class (NP), Social Worker, and Housing Support Worker. Care sites are identified throughout the GTA, where the risks of COVID-19 infection are most significant. Once at the sites, the Mobile team tests everyone who requests it, regardless of ancestry to ensure the greatest impact against COVID-19 infection transmission. Mobile testing sites include congregate living locations such as encampments, Indigenous housing buildings that are specific to families and shelters. The Mobile Health is also equipped for the delivery of primary care and to administered vaccinations.
