COVID-19 FAQs

About this question and answer (Q&A) page

We are all working together across the community in Guelph and Wellington County to provide as many healthcare services as we can at the highest quality level possible in a challenging time for staffing and patient need. Local hospitals provide a regional report on Tuesdays and Fridays on the number of COVID-19 patients in hospital and their vaccination status, the number of hospital staff off work due to COVID and other hospital-based information. Dr. Mercer, the Medical Officer of Health, also posted a letter to our community regarding the return to in-person learning and the important measures we must continue to take to keep our community safe.

This Q&A is meant to help you understand what to do if you have COVID-19 symptoms and how to get help if you need it. Our hospitals and emergency medical system (e.g. system that provides emergency medical care such as 911 communication and ambulances) are extremely busy and should only be used for medical emergencies. The following questions and answers are related to the current COVID-19 situation in Guelph and Wellington County and will be updated regularly.
