COVID-19 outbreak declared after Guelph marriage ceremony

Local health authorities are advising anyone who attended a wedding in Guelph last month they may have been exposed to COVID-19.

According to a news release from Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health, anyone who attended a wedding at 2:30 p.m. Aug. 21 at Basilica of Our Lady Immaculate or a subsequent reception at a private residence in Puslinch is now “considered a high-risk contact,” as COVID-19 is believed to have been transmitted at these events.

Public health has declared an outbreak as a result of these events.

According to a copy of a letter posted on public health’s website, those contacts are being asked to self-isolate until the end of the day Sept. 1 and monitor for any symptoms of COVID-19.

However, the letter notes there is an exception for those who are fully immunized for COVID-19, or have had the virus in the past 90 days, and are presenting no symptoms.
