In March and April of 2020, Dr. Trevor Jain noticed a large number of Islanders doing amazing things to prepare PEI’s COVID response with only a few being recognized at that time for their efforts. No COVID Warrior was more important than another, and wanting to turn something negative into a positive, Dr. Jain commissioned the COVID Warrior Coin to recognize the outstanding leadership, initiative and hard work of multiple Islanders and organizations who have gone above and beyond during this ongoing response.
It is a great privilege for Her Honour, Lieutenant Governor Antoinette Perry, to award a limited number of the specially-made coins as part of this recognition program.
