GWSA is following the province, City of Guelph, and WDG Public Health.

June 11, 2022: 

Provincial mandates have been lifted for most public settings.

  • Masks are still recommended for public transit and health-care facilities.
  • Individual organizations and businesses continue to have authority to keep requirements in place.
  • You should also continue to wear a tight-fitting well-constructed mask if you feel it is right for you; if you are at high risk for severe illness; if you recovering from or have symptoms of COVID-19, or are a close contact with someone who has COVID-19.

April 11, 2022:

With the sixth wave upon us, the provincial medical officer of health  is strongly advising people to:

  • wear quality three-layer cloth or medical masks such as N95 or KN95 when indoors,
  • get the second booster shots now available to those over 60,
  • monitor daily for symptoms and test with free rapid tests or PCR tests as needed, and
  • be aware if they qualify for antiviral medications, which are available at no cost and are most effective when taken promptly after infection.

March 21, 2022:

The province has removed the general compliance rules on masking, physical distancing, and screening.

Many of our members continue to wear masks. We ask that all GWSA members respect individual decisions around comfort and safety. Seniors have greater risks from COVID-19 infection, and the decision of whether to wear a mask is a personal one.

  • Masks are optional in City of Guelph recreation centres including the Evergreen Centre.
  • Proof of vaccination is not required in our facilities. City of Guelph recreation centres, including the Evergreen Seniors Community Centre and West End Community Centre, no longer require Proof of Vaccination.
  • Room capacities have returned to normal. The province removed the rules relating to capacity limits. This allows the GWSA to increase the numbers our activities and events can accommodate.

Regulations still mandate masking in specific locations which include public transit, hospitals and health care clinics, long-term care and retirement homes, specified residential care facilities and congregate care settings, laboratories and homeless shelters.


Thank you for your patience through the many adjustments we have been making over the past year. Be active, get involved, make friends- and help keep yourself and others safe!
