Second Positive Case at CFM Cobourg

April 19, 2021

We were informed yesterday that a second employee from our Cameco Fuel Manufacturing Facility (CFM) in Cobourg has tested positive for COVID-19. We wish them a good recovery and are providing the necessary support to ensure they have the resources they need during this difficult time.

The employee was last in the facility on Friday, April 9. This individual was identified as a contact stemming from the positive case on April 9 at CFM Cobourg and was required to isolate and get tested at a COVID-19 assessment centre. We are treating the two cases as related.

Through contact tracing, we have identified one employee who had low-risk contact with the most recent positive case who will be tested for COVID-19. There is no impact to operations.

The health and safety of all our employees remains our top priority. We are working with our company medical team and public health authorities and continue to follow their guidance.
