Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health has a confirmed case of COVID-19 in the Orangeville area. 

Based on the advice from Guelph's Medical Officer of Health, the City of Guelph has decided to close all arenas, pools, recreation centres, libraries, and museums to the public until April 5, 2020.

"Our emergency management team is working with our partners at Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health and the Guelph General Hospital to protect the health and safety of our community. We know closures and cancellations are disruptive and inconvenient, but we think it's the best way to prevent the potential spread of COVID-19," said Guelph Mayor Cam Guthrie.

"Public services such as transit, building permits, water and wastewater treatment, road work and waste collection will continue. The situation is changing quickly, and we appreciate everyone's patience as we work to share the best information available as quickly as possible," said City of Guelph Chief Administrative Officer Scott Stewart.
