Public Health has created a new dashboard that lets people see updated statistics and information on the local COVID-19 situation.

The Assessment Centre and Case Data is updated regularly and can be found here.

It details the status of each confirmed case (currently the four already reported) in Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health’s catchment area as well as statistics from their two assessment centres: in Guelph and Orangeville.

In Guelph, as of March 24, the assessment centre on Delhi Street has assessed 483 visitors, with 132 of those tested for COVID-19.

In Orangeville, the assessment centre has assessed 954 people and 289 were tested for COVID-19.

WDG Public Health currently has four cases:

  • a Dufferin male in his 40s who acquired it through travel and is isolated at home.

  • a Wellington County man in his 60s who acquired it through community spread and is isolated in hospital.

  • a Dufferin County man in his 70s who acquired it through travel who is isolated at home.

  • A Guelph man in his 80s who acquired it through community spread and is isolated in hospital.

The statistics do not include two Guelph General Hospital employees who tested positive because they do not live in the area so statistically they are accounted for through a different health unit.
