All positive cases from the facility are related to the outbreak declared on Jan. 8 and the facility is said to continue its safety protocols such as personal protective equipment, physical barriers, increased sanitation, social distancing, temperature testing, travel restrictions, and visitor restrictions.
Last week, the facility on Watson Parkway’s case count was 20, with four active cases and 18 employees isolating. It is unclear how many cases are currently active.
Guelph has six new cases and 58 active cases as of Wednesday morning.
