CPOG Statement on Injury Prevention – April 2020

April 15, 2020

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, your most important contribution is to adhere to social distancing measures. However, the Canadian Paediatric Orthopaedic Group acknowledges the challenge that comes with the closure of schools, childcare and organized sport and activities.

While trampolines, ATVs, motorbikes and snowmobiles may provide entertainment and activity, they carry a high risk of severe injuries. We encourage caregivers to consider the consequences of these injuries during the COVID-19 pandemic.
