“I applaud the continuing steps Wellington County is taking to protect residents from COVID- 19,” said Dr. Nicola Mercer, Medical Officer of Health and CEO of Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health. “Expanding the locations where vaccines are required adds additional layers of safety for residents and helps us continue to return to more normal activities.”
All patrons, regardless of their COVID-19 vaccination status, will still be able to access library resources online and/or reserve items for a curbside pick-up. Contact your local branch for more information.
