Tyson Foods Increasing Virus Testing
July 31, 2020 7:48am
Tyson Foods plans to administer thousands of coronavirus tests per week at its U.S. facilities in an expanded effort to protect its workers.
Tyson, which has pork and turkey plants in Storm Lake, will randomly test employees who have no symptoms, as well as those with symptoms. The tests are on top of daily screenings when workers arrive at Tyson’s 140 U.S. production facilities.
A COVID-19 outbreak was confirmed at Tyson's Storm Lake pork plant in late May.
The United Food and Commercial Workers International Union, which represents many of Tyson’s 120-thousand U.S. workers, says other meat processing companies should follow Tyson’s lead.
