56 employees at the LNG Canada Project site in Kitimat have tested positive for COVID-19 since the outbreak announcement on Nov. 19, Northern Health said in a release Wednesday (Dec. 9).
This is a two-person increase since the last update on Dec. 4. Northern Health said six of these cases are still active and 50 are considered recovered, which is a one-person increase in active cases — as well as in recovered cases — since the last update.
Northern Health said no one is in self-isolation at the project site and all six active cases are self-isolating “off-site/in their home communities”.
Northern Health said that they are still screening employees on-site, as well as continuing contact management and tracing. There are still no public exposures in Kitimat and the surrounding area at this time.
