According to police, the incident happened on April 9 at around 1:45 p.m. near the intersection of Wellington and Dublin streets.
Police allege a man walked up behind the women and coughed on them. He then laughed and said, “Now you have coronavirus,” police reported.
The man was arrested a few minutes later and he’s been charged with causing a nuisance and breaching probation.
He was not identified by Guelph police and will make a court appearance in July.
The news comes Guelph reports 69 confirmed cases of the novel of coronavirus and at least one death as of Tuesday morning.
