The Weyerhaeuser mill in Kenora is making a nice recovery, according to manager Bill Candline.

He says they've got about 220 staff working, with shipments of their products to the U.S. and Japan, even after a slow spring due to COVID-19.

"Things have started to turn around. The opening of these economies has turned around. We're starting to see fairly healthy demand for our product again, which is certainly good for us," he said yesterday.

Candline emphasized the importance of safety measures -- social distancing, disinfection, face shields, use of face masks -- as a way to keep staff safe, during the coronavirus outbreak.

Weyerhaeuser shares were trading at just over $25 yesterday, a nice rebound from less than $15 in March but down from a high of more than $38 last June.
