Message from Civeo President and CEO Bradley Dodson: March 18, we issued a notification to employees and guests at Borealis Lodge of a possible case of COVID-19. Today, we received confirmation that the individual in question has tested negative. We are thankful for his diagnosis and wish him well in his recovery. I’d like to thank our staff at Borealis Lodge for responding quickly and decisively to implement our established protocols and procedures that were developed to protect the health and wellbeing of everyone at site. While the test results revealed that these additional measures were ultimately not required, it provided an opportunity to stress-test our protocols and demonstrate their importance to protect our employees and guests. This incident illustrates how people across our organization are working together to support each other in our efforts to respond to this pandemic. I ask that you please continue to follow our established protocols and procedures to keep everyone at our sites safe. Well done team! Regards, Bradley Dodson President & CEO
