Hinshaw says so far three of those infections are confirmed to be the more unsafe Brazilian variant, but she adds that's likely to increase as more results come in. As of Monday, five people had been infected and one case had been confirmed as the P1 variant, Hinshaw said.

There is also an outbreak at a separate workplace in the Calgary zone.

"These investigations are complex and it's important that we ensure information is accurate and that anyone at risk is directly contacted before sharing details", Hinshaw wrote.
