Since safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines have become widely available this year and have been proven to be a very effective and safe way of protecting people and reducing COVID-19 transmission, we have strongly encouraged employees to get vaccinated at the earliest possible opportunity. As our mining operations are fly-in fly-out, vaccination is required to travel to sites.
