Close contacts of cases have been told to self-isolate in alternate accommodations at their worksite, or in their home communities, it added.

The health authority has not closed the sites, but said that it had ordered access be limited to all but essential workers “until public health approves an updated COVID-19 safety plan.”

Coastal GasLink said it had also proactively closed its Huckleberry lodge near Houston.

“Nothing matters more to us than safety,” the company said in an update on its website.

“In addition to immediately supporting the work on a re-start plan for these lodges, we will continue to review all plans in place and work with our contractors, Norther Health and our medical experts to implement changes or improvements where necessary.”
