WELLINGTON COUNTY – Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health (WDGPH) is reporting 26 newly confirmed COVID-19 cases in the region over the Aug. 20 to 23 weekend – two in Wellington County, nine in Dufferin County and 12 in Guelph.
GUELPH – Following the Government of Canada’s announcement Aug. 10 about reaching an agreement for Moderna, Inc. to build an mRNA vaccine facility in Canada, Guelph is stepping up to open its doors to the leading COVID-19 vaccine developer.
The first few days of Canada’s 44th general election campaign are not only highlighting the differences between party leader’s stances on mandatory COVID-19 vaccinations in this country, but also how voters feel about the issue.
The last thing that many Canadians working from home may wish to think about at this midpoint of summer is returning to the office. Their employers, on the other hand, may well be thinking of little else.
Ironically, the same crowd that downplayed COVID-19 because it “only” affected about three per cent of Canadians and “only” killed about 0.7% is now somehow extremely concerned about their 0.018% chance of having an adverse reaction to a COVID-19 vaccine.
