Controversial Aylmer Church Asked to Suspend In Person Church Services

Southwestern Public Health has sent a letter to the Church of God in Aylmer asking them to voluntarily stop in person church services after a recent spike in cases in the community.

AYLMER - Southwestern Public Health has sent a letter to the Church of God in Aylmer asking them to voluntarily stop in person church services. 

The notice states the following:

"Southwestern Public Health is recommending that your church, along with others where we are seeing an increased risk in exposure to COVID-19, voluntarily cease in-person church services and all in-person gatherings for 28 days beginning November 17th 2020 and ending December 14th 2020." 

It is common practice for the Health Unit to submit notices to community settings when there is a need to communicate local risks.

The letter was sent to several congregations in regions with a high volume of cases. The Health Unit has also sent the letters to select businesses, workplaces and long-term care settings if there was an increased risk to exposure of COVID-19. 

The only reason we know of the letter that was sent to the Church of God is because the lead pastor at the Church of God Henry Hildebrandt has been defiantly posting about it on social media.

The community of Aylmer has had a spike in cases with three now confirmed at the Assumption Catholic Elementary School and 11 confirmed cases total. The Church of God has made national headlines for leading recent anti mask and freedom rallies.
