ONTARIO – A job fair to recruit workers for the local health care industry is scheduled for Wednesday, Jan. 12, at Four Rivers Cultural Center.

Employers will have information about available jobs and what training is needed at the event, scheduled from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.

The event is being put on by WorkSource Oregon as the health care industry braces for a new surge in Covid cases. The job fair was scheduled before last week’s announcement by state authorities that the Omicron variant of the coronavirus is expected to hit Oregon hard in January.

Among those who have stations:

Valley Family Health Care

Assisting Hands

Saint Alphonus Medical Center . . .
