As of April 13, 2021, B.C.’s Public Health Officer rescinded the previously declared Order and issued a new order on Industrial Projects within the Northern Health Authority Region and Industrial Camps along with additional guidance to several major industrial projects in Northern British Columbia.
Since the original Order was put in place in January 2021, our efforts have been focused on safely continuing with critical fieldwork with a limited workforce approved by public health officials with great success.
We have also been working collaboratively with Northern Health and the B.C. Public Health Officer to develop an enhanced COVID-19 Management Plan. This enhanced plan includes robust and effective health and safety measures designed in accordance with public health guidelines, to help keep workers and communities safe, such as asymptomatic testing for all workers arriving to site. This approved plan provides a strong foundation to safely progress the Coastal GasLink Project.
Coastal GasLink is vital to the long-term prosperity of the North, B.C. and Canada, and we remain focused on delivering this project with our prime contractors, Indigenous and local community partners in a safe and efficient manner.
Our top priority is the health and safety of our workforce and their families, as well as Indigenous and local communities and will continue to evaluate our plans for effectiveness and implement improvements, as necessary.
As we continue to follow all health guidelines, we are committed to making sure our workers and surrounding Indigenous and local communities have access to the information they need. You can stay connected and get updates by visiting CoastalGasLink.com/Safety.
