Premier Cochrane to be absent from the House due to COVID-19

Premier Caroline Cochrane today issued the following statement:

“It is with regret that I will not be in the House for the beginning of Session as I have tested positive for COVID-19. Per the Chief Public Health Officer’s current recommendations, I am staying home and limiting my contact with others. Attending Session would increase the chance of spreading illnesses to my colleagues and other community members, and I am not willing to take that risk.

“I recognize that my self-isolation comes at a time of great uncertainty in the territory due to forest fires and flooding. I want to reassure residents that Cabinet meets daily on these matters, and I will continue to chair these meetings virtually. Deputy Premier Diane Archie will remain in the House during my absence, and I am hopeful that I will be able to attend Session next week.

“COVID-19 is part of our new normal, and I want to encourage residents to stay up to date with their vaccinations. While there are no COVID-19 Public Health Orders in place requiring isolation, staying in place and avoiding contact with others remains an effective way of limiting the spread of COVID-19 in the territory.”
