For those who have been social distancing for over a year, the light at the end of the pandemic tunnel comes with an exciting cherry on top: the return to having sex! But even when COVID-19 is no longer a concern, the need to protect our sexual health and safety should still be top of mind. Health Affairs reported when the COVID-19 pandemic began, the United States was already experiencing record high rates of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), and since the pandemic, lack of testing has made it difficult to accurately measure the changes in STIs like chlamydia and gonorrhea. With health clinics reducing office hours and, in some cases, temporarily closing, care for STIs has fallen below par. About one in five people in the United States has an STI, according to CDC data from 2018, so it’s important that we arm people with the tools they need to be a responsible sexually active adult.

The number of COVID-19 patients in French hospitals has dropped slightly as a third nationwide lockdown put in place early in April starts to have an impact, but France continues to report about 300 new deaths per day. Health ministry data showed that 5,914 people were in intensive care units with COVID-19 on Friday, 10 fewer than on Thursday and the second fall this week. In a second sign that pressure on France's hospital system is starting to ease, the number of patients in hospital with COVID-19 dropped by 196 to 30,472, the fourth consecutive drop this week, from a 2021 high of 31,262 on Monday.

President Emmanuel Macron has confirmed that French museums and restaurant terraces will be able to reopen from mid-May after nearly seven months' closure beginning the Covid-19 second wave. Macron held talks with Prime Minister Jean Castex and Health Minister Olivier Véran on Thursday at the Elysée with the aim of defining the return of the businesses that have been closed during another attempt to stem the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.“From the first phase of reopening, culture will be there,” said Macron, citing museums as the first venues to reopen. “If after two or three weeks it is going well, we can move on to phase two and so on.”Though the exact details of the opening hours and health protocols have not been specified, the move to open terraces – responsible for around 30 percent of a bar’s turnover – will offer a glimpse of salvation.Relief for restaurateurs"We are delighted that the date of mid-May is confirmed for the opening of the terraces," said Franck Trouet, a spokesman for the GNI union of independent hotels and restaurants. "It was good for morale. We are able to start preparing.”Last summer following the emergence from the first national lockdown, scores of cafes, bars and customers failed to observe the rules on social distancing.Subsequent shutdowns have highlighted the need for vigilance, say ministers.Cautious reopeningAgnès Pannier-Runacher, the minister for industry told RMC: “The reopening will be progressive and worked profession by profession.”It is understood that between 15 and 28 May, terraces can start reopening and hotel guests will be allowed to have breakfast, lunch and dinner in the dining room.During a second phase between 29 May and 11 June, restaurants will be able to offer limited inside dining. Bars and cafes will also be able to serve a set number of customers inside.From 12 June, a full reopening is planned."We need to find the right balance, so that everyone's health is guaranteed and so that companies can resume activity allowing them to pay their suppliers and employees,” added Trouet.
One after another, quarterbacks once believed to be franchise cornerstones after being top five draft picks changed addresses this off-season in staggering succession. Matthew Stafford and Jared Goff switched teams in a swap of former No. 1 overall picks. Carson Wentz and Sam Darnold were traded away by teams that had recently tried to build around those passers. Mitchell Trubisky had to settle for a backup contract deal after flaming out in Chicago. Those were part of a growing pattern around the league as teams have never been more willing to use high draft picks on quarterbacks, and never been quicker to cut ties when those investments don’t pay off. The cycle will continue later this month when quarterbacks are expected to be drafted with the top three picks and a chance that a record five could go in the top 10 as the lure of a top passer on an affordable rookie deal is too enticing to pass up. The Jets will get back on the rookie quarterback roller coaster three years after trading up to take Darnold with the third pick. With New York holding the second selection in a quarterback-heavy draft, general manager Joe Douglas dealt Darnold to Carolina and now has his eyes on another potential franchise QB, likely BYU's Zach Wilson. “We felt like this was the best decision for the entire organization moving forward,” Douglas said, “and hitting the reset button.” The resets are coming quicker than ever, with the Jets' decision to trade Darold after his third season the quickest a team has moved on from a top 5 quarterback since the Raiders cut 2007 No. 1 overall pick JaMarcus Russell after his third season in the NFL. But moves like it are happening more frequently, with the Cardinals trading away 2018 first-rounder (No. 10) Josh Rosen after one season in order to take Kyler Murray first overall in 2019. In all, four of the five quarterbacks taken with top five picks from 2016-18 changed teams this off-season. Darnold was one of three to get traded, joining the top two picks in the 2016 draft: No. 1 selection Goff dealt from the Rams to Detroit for 2009 top pick Stafford, and No. 2 choice Wentz from Philadelphia to Indianapolis. Trubisky, the third overall pick by Chicago in 2017, was signed as a free agent to be a backup in Buffalo to Josh Allen. Only 2018 No. 1 pick Baker Mayfield remains with his original team as he enters his fourth season with Cleveland. “It’s really unprecedented, what’s happening with possible franchise guys that are moving,” Rams coach Sean McVay said. Later this month several more teams will hope they found their franchise guy, with Jacksonville, the Jets and San Francisco all expected to take quarterbacks with the first three picks on Aug. 29, something that has happened only twice (1971, 1999) in the common draft era. Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence is widely expected to go first to the Jaguars, then Wilson as the possible replacement for Darnold at No. 2. If that happens, the Niners would have their choice of Ohio State’s Justin Fields, Alabama’s Mac Jones and North Dakota State’s Trey Lance, with the other two potentially going later in the top 10 to teams like Atlanta, Detroit or Denver. And don't forget another quarterback-needy team willing to trade up such as New England, Washington or Chicago. San Francisco made the big move because of the desire to find one of the handful of quarterbacks that can turn a good team into a Super Bowl contender on an annual basis. “It’s a risk every single year you go into an NFL season without one of those top five guys,” said coach Kyle Shanahan, who traded the No. 12 pick and two future first-round choices to move up to No. 3. “It’s very tough to win in this league and there’s only a few quarterbacks that you’re going to win because of just the quarterback. Very few, and even those guys still need a good team around them. You’ve got to take risks. This is a risk we were willing to take.” Shanahan lost a Super Bowl following the 2019 season to one of those quarterbacks as Patrick Mahomes led a fourth-quarter comeback to deliver the Chiefs the title. Mahomes is by far the most successful of the 22 quarterbacks taken in the top 10 of the past 10 drafts, a rate that is double what it had been in the common draft era. The change came following the 2011 CBA that implemented a rookie wage scale, which increased the value of quarterbacks on rookie contracts. This will be the seventh straight season with multiple QBs going in the top 10, more than doubling the previous longest streak in the common draft era of three years. The hit rate on those quarterbacks hasn’t been extremely high, however, with none of the 11 picked from 2011-16 still on the team making that selection; two of them picked in the past four drafts — Trubisky and Rosen — already are gone. Some of those QBs who have moved on had some level of success, with 2011 No. 1 overall selection Cam Newton winning an MVP and taking Carolina to the Super Bowl. And 2012 top pick Andrew Luck putting together a sustained stretch of success before an early retirement in 2019 due to injuries. Others who are still on their current teams have shown promise, with Allen leading Buffalo to the AFC title game last season, Mayfield winning Cleveland’s first playoff game in 26 years, and Murray and Offensive Rookie of the Year Justin Herbert showing flashes of stardom. For others such 2020 top 5 picks Joe Burrow and Tua Tagovailoa, or 2019 first-rounder Daniel Jones, it might still be too early to judge. Others never reached their lofty expectations with the teams that drafted them whether because of injuries (Robert Griffin III) or poor play (Trubisky, Blake Bortles and Blaine Gabbert). For 2012 No. 8 pick Ryan Tannehill, it took changing teams from Miami to Tennessee for him to live up to his billing, something the Panthers hope will be replicated with Darnold. “I think in this offence ..., with the weapons we have around him, that he can take that next step with us,” GM Scott Fitterer said. If not, the Panthers could soon be looking for a replacement in the top 10 of the draft. ___ More AP NFL coverage: https://apnews.com/hub/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFL Josh Dubow, The Associated Press

OTTAWA — The Liberals will look to thread an economic needle with Monday's budget, while dealing with a minority Parliament where the document's defeat would topple the government. It has been more than two years — and two throne speeches — since the Liberals delivered a federal budget, having not done so last year due to what the government said was the economic uncertainty COVID-19 had created. The Liberals have promised to lay out a plan to green the economy, create a national child-care system and help displaced workers improve their skills. Provinces will be looking for more health-care cash, small businesses for an extension of emergency aid, and credit-rating agencies for certainty that historic deficits and debts will be tamed over time. Elliot Hughes, a one-time adviser to former finance minister Bill Morneau, says how the government has fuelled expectations sets up quite the day in terms of policy and spending the budget will lay out.

The latest news on COVID-19 developments in Canada (all times Eastern): --- 12:30 p.m. The federal government has secured eight million additional doses of Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine, to be delivered by mid-summer. Procurement Minister Anita Anand says the first additional four million shots will arrive in May, followed by two million in June and another two million in July. Anand said the company will also move another 400,000 doses from the third quarter into June. Canada's initial shipment of approximately 300,000 doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine will arrive during the week of April 27, Anand said, to be delivered to the provinces at the beginning of May. --- 11:11 a.m. Quebec is reporting 1,527 new COVID-19 cases today and seven more deaths attributed to the novel coronavirus, including one in the past 24 hours. Health officials say hospitalizations rose by three, to 664, and 167 people were in intensive care, a rise of eight. The province says it administered 74,927 vaccine doses on Thursday, a single-day record. Quebec has reported a total of 334,071 COVID-19 infections and 10,785 deaths linked to the virus. --- 11:05 a.m. Procurement Minister Anita Anand says Canada's incoming vaccine supply from Moderna will be slashed in half through the rest of April. Anand says in a statement that Moderna will ship 650,000 doses of its vaccine to Canada by the end of the month, instead of the expected 1.2 million. Moderna said the limited supply is due to a "slower than anticipated ramp up" of its production capacity. Anand says the company also told Canada that one to two million doses of the 12.3 million scheduled for delivery in the second quarter may be delayed until the third quarter. Anand adds the federal government will continue to press Moderna to fulfill its commitments. --- 10:50 a.m. Police in a city east of Montreal say they are investigating an alleged attempt to illegally gain access to COVID-19 vaccines at a pharmacy. Repentigny, Que., police say they were told of an incident at a Jean Coutu pharmacy that took place on April 11 where someone allegedly impersonated a vaccine inspector. Several media reports cite an internal Jean Coutu memo saying a man presented himself to one of the company’s pharmacies pretending to be a security firm representative and asking to inspect the vaccines. His attempt was rebuffed by staff. A spokeswoman for Groupe Jean Coutu declined to comment and Repentigny police say they took statements and are reviewing surveillance footage. --- 10:40 a.m. Ontario is reporting 4,812 new cases of COVID-19 today, reaching a new peak for a second day in a row.

Yesterday's tally also marked a new record, at 4,736 cases. --- 10:05 a.m. Nunavut is announcing 12 new cases of COVID-19 today, all in Iqaluit. On April 14, the city of about 8,000 people announced its first case since the pandemic began. The city is under a strict lockdown, with all non-essential businesses, government offices and schools closed. There are 13 active cases of COVID-19 in the territory, all in Iqaluit. --- 9:30 a.m The Canadian Medical Association is calling for "extraordinary" measures to address the COVID-19 crisis unfolding in several provinces. The CMA says it wants the federal government to consider re-prioritizing its vaccine distribution strategy to focus on urgent areas instead of distributing to provinces on a per-capita basis. The organization also says provinces should be sharing their health-care resources with areas that are especially hard-hit, including Ontario and Quebec, where intensive care capacity is overwhelmed. The CMA says further restrictions "must also be considered" in provinces experiencing rapid rates of COVID-19 transmission. --- This report by The Canadian Press was first published April 16, 2021.

OTTAWA, April 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan) is pleased to announce that applications for the Supportive Care Assistant Program, funded by the Government of Canada’s Sectoral Initiatives Program, are now open. This new work integrated training program was developed to quickly address the acute labour shortages in the long-term care sector and is offered at no charge by select colleges and institutes across Canada. The program includes six-weeks of online training followed by a four-month paid work placement. Students are given the opportunity to discover a new career and make a difference in their community while earning a wage. After completing the necessary coursework, students will be placed in a long-term or home care setting and perform non-clinical activities to support clients and the health-care team. In addition to providing immediate support to those living and working in long-term care, the program includes a laddering process for participants to up-skill. This offers a career pathway to become fully certified personal care providers (also called personal support workers, health care aides and other titles), ensuring long-term benefits to both students and the sector. The curriculum and course content for the program were created in collaboration with colleges and institutes from across the country who shared expertise and resources. Over the next year, up to 2,600 assistants will be trained nationally thanks to the Supportive Care Assistant Program. Employers will also receive a wage subsidy of $5,000 per student. The program is part of CICan’s Building Capacity in Long-term Care project. Interested students can visit careerlauncher.ca/care for more information and to apply.
