Positive COVID-19 test at Cigar Lake

An individual at Cigar Lake tested positive today for COVID-19. The result is being sent for confirmation to the provincial lab and will be classified as a presumptive positive until we have confirmation.

This is the fourth positive test at the northern mining operation in the last two days. Cameco is working closely with the Northern Population Health Unit and following their guidance.

Given the apparent connection to multiple cases, Cigar Lake now meets the Saskatchewan Health Authority’s definition of an outbreak. However, Cameco’s extensive health and safety protocols means Cigar Lake is still operating safely.
