A meatpacking plant in west Michigan had 60 employees test positive for COVID-19, according to reports. JBS Meat Packaging in Gun Plain Township had to shut down over the weekend after the employees tested positive COVI-19. However, the plant was back open on Monday with limited staffing, Allegan County health officials said. On Monday, JBS announced the indefinite closure of its Worthington, Minnesota, pork production facility because it could not “safely operate.” The facility employs more than 2,000 and processes 20,000 hogs per day. When COVID-19 is prevalent in the community, fear is heightened, absenteeism rises. When absenteeism levels become too high, facilities cannot safely operate.” @ https://www.clickondetroit.com/news/local/2020/04/21/reports-60-workers-at-michigan-meat-packing-plant-test-positive-for-covid-19/
