Guelph will remain at the orange (restrict) level of COVID control measures, at least for now.

On Friday the province announced five regions would be moving to new levels, with Windsor-Essex County Health Unit being the only one moving into the red (control) zone.

Guelph had 46 new confirmed cases in the previous week and there were 78 confirmed cases in Wellington County.

Haldimand-Norfolk Health Unit was moved into the orange level while Hastings Prince Edward Public Health, Lambton Public Health and Northwestern Health Unit moved into yellow (protect).

"As we continue in our fight against this second wave of COVID-19, the need to follow public health advice has never been greater," said Dr. David Williams, Chief Medical Officer of Health. "All Ontarians are urged to adhere to the organized public event and social gathering limits in their region and avoid any non-essential travel in order to reduce the risk of exposure and ensure the continued safety of the community."
