Tyson Foods said it was temporarily halting production at another of its meat plants Thursday due to the coronavirus.
The company said it was working with health officials in three surrounding counties to test 1,400 employees from its Pasco, Washington, plant for COVID-19. The employees are being asked to self-isolate in the meantime and will continue to be paid during the closure.
Tyson couldn’t immediately say how long the plant will remain shuttered. Reopening will depend on the outcome of the testing.
