BC Hydro is continuing to follow the Ministry of Health guidelines, which requires that anyone showing any respiratory symptoms must isolate no matter how mild they may be.
The COVID-19 confirmed worker arrived from Alberta on July 13th and immediately went into self-isolation after receiving their test results from Alberta Health Services on July 15th. Northern Health then provided a second test and confirmed the positive case on July 16th.
BC Hydro says the worker is being cared for by the on-site health clinic. The trained staff, facilities, and supplies there can provide health care to workers in isolation or quarantine.
