Fortescue Metals Group (Fortescue) has been advised by the Western Australian Department of Health that a maintenance contractor who was at our Cloudbreak site from Tuesday 20 July to Thursday 27 July 2021, has returned a weak positive test result for COVID-19. This person was asymptomatic while on site and is currently in isolation awaiting the outcome of further testing.
The health and safety of our team members remains our highest priority and we are working closely with the Department of Health to assist with contact tracing.
In accordance with the directions of the Department of Health, all team members who were on site during that period are not required to isolate unless they are identified as a close contact through contact tracing. Fortescue has a comprehensive COVID-19 management plan and protocols, as well as access to rapid antigen testing on site.
Fortescue believes that vaccination is the key to protecting our workforce and all team members are encouraged to receive a COVID-19 vaccine in line with current directions from the Commonwealth Government.
