Local hospitals will continue to require masks be worn

Waterloo Region & Wellington County | June 8, 2022 –The provincial mandate requiring masks be worn in high risk settings ends this Saturday. Locally, hospitals will continue to require masks be worn by everyone coming into the building. 

“The science tells us how COVID is spread and that has not changed,” says Marianne Walker, President and CEO of Guelph General Hospital and Waterloo Wellington hospital regional lead, COVID-19 response. “We care for the most vulnerable patients and masking is one way we can keep them safe.”

“Maintaining safety measures at our hospitals helps protect patients and staff. They also reduce the opportunity for outbreaks to occur in hospital settings which can affect our ability to provide and ramp up our services.”
