Northern Health
Information Bulletin

Ongoing monitoring has identified additional COVID-19 cases associated with an outbreak declared by NH Medical Health Officers on December 19, 2020, at two workforce accommodation sites on the Coastal Gas Link (CGL) project.

January 8, 2021 update: To date, there have been 56 laboratory-confirmed cases associated with the outbreak at 7 Mile Lodge and Little Rock Lake Lodge (an increase of 3 since the December 31 update). All of the cases are now recovered and have completed their required self-isolation.

This will be the final regular update regarding total case counts, recoveries and isolations, pending any additional cases.

The information below is unchanged from previous updates.

Both work sites are limited (by public health order) to essential workers only, to support those in self-isolation and to ensure safe operation of the sites until public health approves updated COVID-19 safety plans for restarting project work.

Northern Health is working with Coastal Gas Link, and Pacific Atlantic Pipeline Construction (PAPC), which is the prime contractor at the 7 Mile Lodge and Little Rock Lake Lodge work sites, in response to the outbreak to ensure enhanced control measures are followed to protect the health of employees, and of the communities where they live and work.
