Valard West-Tie Project Outbreak
Valard Construction continues to apply their “Level 3” safety measures, which includes ongoing employee COVID-19 testing, additional infection control protocols and complete camp lockdown. All workers who test positive for COVID-19 are also being relocated outside of the community. In addition, Valard Construction is working closely with the TBDHU to move any individual who is identified as high risk out of the community.
Contact tracing and self-isolation
All patients who have tested positive for the virus have been contacted by the Thunder Bay District Health Unit (TBDHU) and are self-isolating at home to prevent further spread of the virus.
The TBDHU is completing very thorough contact tracing and will contact those who are considered high risk contacts of the individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19. At this time, anyone who is not specifically contacted by public health, would be considered at low risk.
To help with the contact tracing process, consider downloading the COVID Alert app.
