(MUSSELWHITE MINE) – Due to the ongoing public health crisis spawned out of the outbreak of the Novel Coronavirus COVID-19, Musselwhite Mine is sending workers home.
The mine informed workers today that the majority of people are headed home and that a skeleton crew would remain at the mine.
Flights begin tomorrow to get the workers home. The shutdown is expected to be gradual and over the next while until they are reduced to minimal staff.
Some estimates are that over 300 people are expected to make their way home.
The Novel Coronavirus COVID-19 has spread rapidly around the planet and is killing people at rates that are often overwhelming healthcare systems.
Good guy Musselwhite for putting your employees health and safety above all else.
