November 23 Update: Confirmed positive COVID-19 cases at the LNG Canada project site

Northern Health Authority has confirmed additional positive COVID-19 cases at the LNG Canada Project site in Kitimat, B.C. All affected individuals have been placed in isolation and are being cared for in their homes or at the project’s on-site facilities by medical and support staff. Contact management and tracing have gone well, and will continue. We send our good thoughts to all those who have tested positive and wish them a swift recovery.

All cases have occurred in the same general work location. There are no public exposures in Kitimat resulting from the event at this time.

Below are new actions we are taking to manage this specific situation.


  • Thorough disinfection and sanitization, including electro-static cleaning, of the impacted work areas have occurred.

Take care and stay safe.
