A man in his 60s is in hospital in Mount Forest after testing positive for COVID-19.

Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health said the man has not travelled recently and did not have contact with anyone with the virus.

“This is evidence that the COVID-19 virus is circulating in our community, and you can get it from another person,” medical officer of health Dr. Nicola Mercer said in a release.

WDGPH says it is asking people to “limit trips outside the home to only what is necessary such as groceries or medical care.”
