prescription-4545598_1920The Canadian Medical Association (CMA) is asking employers to discontinue requiring workers to provide sick notes to be allowed time off work amid the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

“Sick notes place an unnecessary burden on the health-care system at a time where we all need to focus on addressing one of the biggest public health challenges of our time.”
