ST. JOHN'S, N.L. —

Public Health officials in Newfoundland and Labrador reported one new case of COVID-19 Thursday.

The confirmed case is a female in the Eastern Health region between 40-49 years of age. The case is under investigation and contact tracing is underway. 

With no new recoveries, the province has 5 active cases — two in Eastern, two in Western Health, and one in Central Health.

Since yesterday's advisory, 244 people were tested.

Officials are also advising of two COVID-19 outbreaks at worksites in Alberta — CNRL Jackfish and Suncor Mackay River.

Rotational workers with these projects who have returned to the province in the last 14 days must self-isolate and physically distance away from household members, and call 811 to arrange testing.

These workers must now complete the full 14-day self-isolation period, regardless of their test result. The rules for N.L. rotational workers from who work in Canada that went into effect on March 12, 2021, do not apply to workers at worksites where there is an ongoing outbreak.
