Dr. Nicola Mercer has issued an order under Section 22 of the Health Protection and Promotion Act requiring face coverings be worn in commercial establishments

Public Advisory

As of September 18, 2020, there is an expaned Section 22 order in place for Wellington County, Dufferin County and the City of Guelph requiring face coverings to be worn inside commercial establishments and private commercial vehicles.

The order was updated on September 15, 2020 in part because the “re-opening of further Establishments in Stage 3 has increased the frequency of contact and limit opportunities for physical distancing between persons in the jurisdiction of the Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Health Unit which, absent adequate preventative measures, will increase the number of cases of COVID-19 cases in the jurisdiction of the Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Health Unit.”

The full order and Face Coverings FAQs can be found on our website.
