Guelph’s public health unit reported 71 new cases of COVID-19 in the city on Wednesday, with the total case count reaching 8,023.
However, due to recent testing eligibility changes, the provincial government says counts are an underestimation of the true spread of the virus in the community.
The latest data shows the city has at least 802 active cases, with 234 new recoveries reported. Total resolved cases stand at 7,174.
The city’s fatal case count remains at 47 after a death was reported the previous day.
