There are still 29 active cases of COVID-19 being reported in Huron and Perth Counties.

Medical Officer of Health Dr. Miriam Klassen said Monday the cases continue to be linked in clusters.

Klassen explained, “It is not accurate to contribute all of the recent cases to one particular group of people and we will not be specifying groups at this time as it does not change our public health recommendations.’

She added there is the possibility of additional cases related to the cluster, but new cases can pop up anywhere.

Dr. Klassen said there are still cases scattered around the province, so everyone still needs to be vigilant in taking protective measures, including handwashing, physical distancing, and masks.

Wellington Dufferin Guelph Public Health reported one new case of the novel coronavirus in Wellington County Monday. That is the only active case in Wellington.

The Grey Bruce Public Health Unit reported one active case, and no new cases Monday.
