Good evening,

For those who are seeking a COVID-19 test, Windsor Regional Hospital is conducting testing tomorrow, Tuesday, August 25, outside the St. Clair College Sportsplex from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

If you are a tourism or hospitality worker, help is available through the Tourism & Hospitality Emergency Response. Visit TourismHospitalityWorkers.ca for information on training, employment supports, and relief programs. You can also register for the Tourism & Hospitality Workers’ Registry to receive information about job opportunities, safe return to work, and regional and virtual employment services.  This initiative is led by OTEC and funded by the Government of Canada’s Future Skills Centre and the Government of Ontario.
