That old flip phone can help flatten the curve
IF YOU WANT TO HELP WITH FLATTENING THE COVID-19 CURVE....Dr. A Somers is looking for OLD FLIP PHONES (or any cellphone with no significant street value) which are being distributed to patients that are of low-income or in precarious housing situations. They use these to contact trace COVID-19 positive patients to help facilitate self-isolation, which protects both the individual and our population at large.
Please mail factory reset phones AND chargers (no sim cards) to:
Toronto General Hospital
c/o Dr. A Somers
200 Elizabeth Street, R Fraser Elliot Building
Ground Floor, Room 480
Toronto, ON, M5G2C4
They can be dropped off as well, but mailing is best for distancing/isolation purposes.
***Remember to factory reset, remove personal info and sim cards. Also a charger is necessary. *** Also, please note you won't be getting your phone back, so if you want to keep your early 2000s memorabilia to make a shrine one day, they understand. ***
