The COVID-190 outbreak at two Interior accommodation sites on the Coastal Gas Link (CGL) project continues to grow, Northern Health said Thursday.
There are now 48 laboratory confirmed cases associated with the outbreak at 7 Mile Lodge in the Burns Lake Local Health Area (LHA), and Little Rock Lake Lodge in Nechako LHA. Thirty-one cases remain active; the majority are in self-isolation at their homes while a small number are self-isolating at their respective lodge.
Both work sites are restricted to essential workers to support those in self-isolation and to ensure safe operation of the sites until public health officers approve updated COVID-19 safety plans for restarting project work.
Northern Health is working with Coastal Gas Link, and Pacific Atlantic Pipeline Construction (PAPC), which is the prime contractor at the 7 Mile Lodge and Little Rock Lake Lodge work sites, to ensure enhanced control measures are followed to protect employees and of the communities where they live and work.
