BC Hydro announced Wednesday night that a worker at Site C has tested positive for COVID-19.
The person worked at Site C the week of September 7, stayed at an onsite lodge, and followed all safety protocols.
Upon returning home, the employee learned they were in contact with someone who had tested positive before arriving at Site C, and the employee took a test on September 15 after developing systems.
BC Hydro says the employee didn't leave camp during his time at Site C, and is currently recovering in isolation at home in the Lower Mainland.
Contact tracing was done at Site C, and a small group of people have been asked to self-monitor. BC Hydro says there was a low risk of transmission.
This is the second time a Site C worker has tested positive for COVID-19. The previous case was announced July 17, and the employee was cleared to go home on July 29 after spending time in isolation.
