Tyson Foods Inc is preparing to reopen its largest US pork plant where at least 444 workers tested positive for COVID-19 and two died.

Tyson Fresh Meats, the beef and pork subsidiary of Tyson Foods, announced the plan to resume limited operations this week at the Waterloo plant late Tuesday night, two weeks after it was shuttered on April 22 amid a coronavirus outbreak.

All employees returning to work have been screened for the virus, the company said, and any employee who tested positive will remain on sick leave until released by health officials to return to work.

Tyson said it performed a deep clean and sanitization of the facility, which employs 2,800 workers, while it was idled.

Workers have been invited to tour the plant on Wednesday to see enhanced safety measures and social distancing procedures that have been implemented.

    Listen Dinkleberries – Jose and Juan get $15. an hour at the packing house. Their buddies Lupe and Jorge get more than that sitting at home on unemployment. So … Jose and Juan go the local ER and complain of FAKE ASS flu symptoms. The corrupt hospital gets $39,000. for each of them if they code them Covid19 and put them on ventilators, even for an hour.

    We’re all being played.
