Coronavirus: Clarington company offers Durham hospitals RVs for workers to live in between shifts

A Clarington RV centre is offering up 70 of its vehicles to Oshawa and Ajax-Pickering hospitals to help frontline workers amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“We must help our heroes that are on the frontline,” said Bob Verwey, president of OWASCO Inc.

Verwey says the company wanted to help health-care staff in any way they could as staff work around the clock to treat COVID-19 patients.

Each doctor or nurse would have their own RV, where they would be able to cook, shower and rest in between shifts.
