During weekly surveillance testing for COVID-19 at Wellington Terrace Long Term Care Home, one employee tested positive and four employees received results indicating low levels of the virus.

Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health has asked that these employees be retested for COVID-19.

Currently, all impacted employees are asymptomatic and in isolation at home.

Out of an abundance of caution, Wellington Terrace has now been placed into a facility-wide outbreak status.

To date, there has not been any positive cases of COVID-19 in the Wellington Terrace resident population.
