WDG Public Health Offering Tips During Solar Eclipse


With the coming solar eclipse in just a few weeks Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health is urging residents to enjoy the event safely even if you don’t plan to watch it.

The moon will pass between the Earth and the Sun casting a shadow on the earth’s surface and Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph will experience a partial eclipse with around 99% coverage.

Public health say it is not safe to look at the sun without approved eye protection and regular sunglasses will not protect your eyes during the eclipse even at a dark tint.

Public says the best practice is to have eclipse glasses, have a paper pinhole projector or box projector or to watch a livestream.
