Second Positive COVID-19 Case at Cameco Fuel Manufacturing

In Editor Choice, Local

On November 24, we became aware that a second Cameco employee from Cameco Fuel Manufacturing in Port Hope has tested positive for COVID-19. The employee was last at work on November 20, 2020. Upon experiencing symptoms over the weekend, this employee followed all protocols and did not enter the workplace with symptoms.

Cleaning and disinfection protocols established in the event of a suspected positive COVID-19 case were quickly carried out as soon as we became aware of the symptomatic employee on November 23.

While this case is not confirmed to be connected to the positive case that we announced on November 19, 2020 we are treating them as linked. Cameco is providing the affected employee with support to ensure they have the resources they need. Our thoughts are with them and we hope that they recover well.

Cameco Fuel Manufacturing continues to operate safely, and we are in close contact with our company medical team and public health authorities and continue to follow their guidance. We are continually reviewing and updating our protective measures based on our experience and as external circumstances warrant.
