November 6, 2020



The chiefs of four First Nations surrounding the Keeyask hydroelectric project in northern Manitoba are calling on Manitoba Hydro to temporarily shut the site down to stamp out an outbreak of COVID-19.

As of Wednesday, 23 Hydro workers at the Keeyask site in northern Manitoba are confirmed positive cases of COVID-19, while another eight workers were "not clear" and awaiting their test results to return from Cadham Provincial Lab, according to Manitoba Hydro's website.

The site was moved to the code red (critical) level of the province's pandemic response system on Tuesday.
