COVID-19 outbreak at United Poultry

Seventeen workers at United Poultry in New Hamburg have tested positive for COVID-19.

They are within the Waterloo Region which has been experiencing rates of infection so high that it has been kept on restrictions while the rest of the province has been opening up.

The main concerns are the Delta variant, which is more contagious, and the people who have not been vaccinated.

The other “hot spot” in the province is the south-central parts of Grey and Bruce Counties.
