Workers returning from Kearl Lake outbreak site reminded of B.C's self-isolation requirement – CFJC Today Kamloops

Published

So far there have been 15 confirmed cases in B.C from this work site. Interior Health says the region has 12 confirmed cases among workers from Kearl Lake, as well as seven confirmed cases of people who did not travel to Kearl Lake but had contact with a worker. Of these 19 cases, 16 people have recovered.

In today’s update, provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry noted that part of the concern was potential transmission to family members when the worker doesn’t know they have the virus.

“We have had occasion where a family member of somebody who has worked in Kearl Lake has come back and not recognized that they’ve had a mild illness, have passed it on to a close contact, and that close contact was a healthcare worker,” Dr. Henry says, “So we need to be very vigilant right now that we’re monitoring ourselves and being very careful where we know that there is risk of transmission of this illness.”
