Second COVID-19 tests for Yukon mine workers come back negative


Three workers at the Victoria Gold Corp. Eagle mine in Yukon, who initially tested positive for COVID-19, have now tested negative, the company says.

Twenty-five workers at the site have been tested for the virus. All but one test came back negative, while the final test hasn’t been returned yet. 

“I think everybody’s feeling pretty good again and some people are suggesting we should re-test the three individuals that had positives,” said Victoria Gold president John McConnell.

Otherwise, he said, the mine has returned to normal.
