Anson Place in Hagersville has been hit hard by COVID-19. This past Friday the Medical Officer of Health in Haldimand-Norfolk made an urgent plea to local churches to invite members of their community to come forward to help with the situation. Individuals who offer to help should be healthy and under the age of 50. It is also essential that individuals are able to self-isolate throughout the duration of the time they serve. No training or experience is needed. Training, payment and PPE will be provided. Before starting at Anson Place, you will be tested for COVID-19 to ensure you are not a carrier of the virus.
