Northern Health medical health officers have declared an end to a COVID-19 outbreak involving the operations of two Quesnel-based reforestation companies.

Originally declared May 20, the order was rescinded Wednesday.

In total, 10 lab-confirmed cases of COVID-19 were associated with the outbreak at Dewan Enterprise LTD, and MikeGroSite Consulting Ltd., operations. Sadly, one person who had tested positive in association with the outbreak passed away from the virus.

Officers also lifted the workplace closure orders issued May 10 for both companies. 

"Both employers have met the requirements for reopening, including providing an action plan to bring them into compliance with a COVID-19 safety plan, ensuring there are adequate infection control measures implemented, and a plan for supporting workers who are sick, or need to self-isolate," Northern Health said in a statement.
