Stephen: Public Health advises of COVID-19 outbreak at worksite in Brandon, MB
The department is advising rotational workers about an identified COVID-19 outbreak at the Seymour Pacific Developments worksite in Brandon, Manitoba. The department was notified about the outbreak by the Public Health Agency of Canada as individuals from this province work with the company.
Rotational workers from the worksite who have returned to Newfoundland and Labrador in the last 14 days must self-isolate away from household members and call 811 to arrange COVID-19 testing. These workers must now complete the full 14-day self-isolation period, regardless of test result.
The rules for rotational workers from Newfoundland and Labrador who work outside Atlantic Canada in another Canadian province or territory that went into effect (Wednesday, September 9) do not apply to workers at worksites where there is an ongoing outbreak.
