Report: Dr Kieran Moore leaving KFL&A Public Health, named Ontario Chief Medical Officer of Health

KFL&A Public Health says it has no comment on a Toronto Star report that Dr. Kieran Moore, Chief Medical Officer of Health for Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington, is leaving his post to replace Dr. David Williams as Ontario’s new Chief Medical Officer of Health. According to unnamed sources cited in that report, the move is expected to be formally announced on Monday, May 31.

Dr. Moore has been commended on multiple occasions for his leadership in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic within the KFL&A region, including an Ontario Auditor General report in which KFL&A Public Health was singled out for praise for its COVID-19 response. COVID-19 infection rates within the KFL&A region have consistently been among the lowest in the province.

Dr David Williams will reportedly retire after his original retirement date was delayed at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Attempts to reach provincial officials for comment on the move have not received a response.

Kingstonians’ reaction to the move was swift:

A replacement for Dr. Kieran Moore as KFL&A Public Health’s new Medical Officer of Health has not yet been announced. More to come.

    Mixed feelings… sad that we’re losing a great health leader for Kingston but happy that he’ll still be there for us and the entire province. Happy landing Dr. Moore!
