Northern Health has declared an end to the COVID-19 outbreak at Pretivm Resources’ Brucejack mine.
One person died in association with the outbreak, after they had returned to their home jurisdiction.
The outbreak was first declared on Feb. 10. Both the health authority and Pretivm Resources had been monitoring a cluster of cases since early February and implementing measures to control transmission at the mine, which hosts around 500 employees at a time and is located north of Stewart.
With the outbreak now deemed over, there are no active community or facility outbreaks under Northern Health’s jurisdiction. Also in March, the health authority announced an end to outbreaks at the Dawson Creek & District Hospital and Acropolis Manor long-term care facility in Prince Rupert.
