Drone Delivery Canada has confirmed that it is classified as an “essential workplace,” in multiple categories, as designated by the Ontario Provincial Government.
This means the company’s business operations remain ongoing.
It says it remains diligent and is following all recommendations from Health Canada sources as Canada deals with COVID-19.
Michael Zahra, president and CEO of DDC, said: “The Company is in dialogue with Provincial & Federal Governments at various Ministries and with First Nations communities, emphasizing that the current situation is an ideal use-case for our proven drone logistics solution to: limit person-to-person contact; bring needed medical and pharmaceutical supplies to remote, rural and suburban communities; transport blood samples to laboratories for testing and deliver other relevant supplies needed for Canada to effectively manage the current situation.
“This is especially true for Aboriginal communities who live remotely, and with an already stressed healthcare infrastructure, and in many cases, unfortunately, underlying health issues.”
Adding: “The Company commends all the front-line professionals fighting this pandemic and we hope that you and your loved ones remain safe and healthy as Canada effectively navigates through this successfully.”
