FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Northern Health says no new cases have been identified with the current Site C outbreak since September 15th.
To date, 92 lab-confirmed cases have been confirmed among several clusters, primarily in unvaccinated workers, with only two cases considered still active.
This is Site C’s second outbreak, which was declared on August 16th.
According to a release from Northern Health, enhanced infection control measures are in place to limit the potential for transmission.
The Site C onsite medical clinic initiated rapid testing for enhanced case and contact management of cases earlier in the month. It included testing asymptomatic workers to help identify and stop transmission of COVID-19. The rapid testing was done under the direction of Northern Health.
Nearly 2,000 onsite workers have received their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine through the project’s medical clinic, and 1,500 have received a second dose. These numbers do not include workers that have been vaccinated outside the project through their local health authority.
As of September 21st, there were 1,629 people in camp, 31 in isolation at camp, 23 in isolation at home, nine active cases of COVID-19. Since January 1st, 2021, there have been 205 confirmed cases of COVID-19 at Site C.
