Red Dog has enhanced COVID-19 protocols in place.
Red Dog has implemented a rigorous testing protocol for all Red Dog personnel at site as well as daily health checks at the beginning of every shift. This testing protocol has been an effective measure in limiting transmission at site and within regional communities. All personnel are encouraged to continue to follow all specific travel protocols and community COVID-19 guidelines while traveling and on their R&R.
Red Dog has made the COVID-19 vaccination available on site and the State of Alaska has made the vaccine readily available at the Anchorage International Airport for all travelers, regardless of their residency. All employees are strongly encouraged to get fully vaccinated as soon as possible, if medically able. Full vaccination significantly reduces the chances of becoming seriously ill or dying from COVID-19, reduces transmission of the virus, and protects against variant strains.
Additionally, personnel at Red Dog are required to wear a 3-ply disposable mask in all public and work spaces, maintain social distancing, and avoid gatherings.
Due to the high level of full vaccination among Red Dog employees and a sustained decrease in COVID-19 cases in our local communities, Red Dog has begun a staged reopening of the exercise areas, gym/track, main cafeteria, and recreation rooms. If an outbreak or ongoing cases are confirmed at site, these spaces will be closed.
