Any workers who answer “YES” to any of the self-assessment questions, displaying symptoms or possessing a body temperature in excess of 37.3°C will be subject to a secondary health assessment at the on-site medical clinic.

Upon further testing, the worker will then be placed in 14-day self-isolation, either at home, if a local worker, or at the Two Rivers Lodge.

To date, no workers have tested positive for COVID-19.
