In the interest of transparency, the Town of Orangeville is providing notice that a part-time employee has tested positive for COVID-19. The Town was notified of the positive test result on March 12. The Town and the staff member (who is now in isolation) are working with Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health.

Public Health has determined that no other staff members were impacted and there was no risk to the public through the person’s employment. However, out of an abundance of caution the Town conducted a deep clean of the staff area.

The Town has and continues to follow Public Health guidelines and has the health and safety of staff – and the community -- as a top priority. It is important for everyone to stay diligent and continue to practise public health measures to reduce the transmission of COVID-19 and variants in our community. These measures include:

  • Washing hands frequently with soap and water for a minimum of 20 seconds
  • Staying home if sick, self-isolating from others and getting tested
  • Keeping a physical distance of at least two metres from others in your group, unless they are household members or in your social circle
  • Wearing a mask or face covering in an enclosed space, especially in settings where it is difficult to maintain a physical distance from others
  • Meeting up outside and keeping gathering times short
  • Taking extra precautions if people are elderly or have chronic health conditions
