Corner Brook Pulp and Paper Ltd. will continue to operate during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Corner Brook producer of newsprint is one of three operations that fall under parent company Kruger’s newsprint, specialty and publication papers in Canada that will remain operational.

The other two are located in Quebec – Brompton Mill in Sherbrooke and Kruger Wayagamack in Trois Rivières.

In a press release issued Tuesday, Kruger said as a provider of goods and services that consumers and businesses rely on for their everyday needs that it will be maintaining all of its operations that have been declared essential by Canadian and U.S. authorities or COVID-19 government guidelines.

That includes the manufacture of tissue products, food packaging and containerboard, newsprint, publication and specialty papers, as well as recycling services, the bottling of beverages and the production of electricity.

Kruger said it is working closely with suppliers, contractors, shippers and customers to maintain these activities and ensure its products continue to meet the essential needs of North Americans.

The company has also implemented rigorous safety and hygiene protocols to ensure that employees identified as part of its essential workforce remain safe and contribute to preventing the spread of the coronavirus.
