Cargill has reduced production at one of Canada’s biggest beef-packing plants, the company and the union representing workers there said on Tuesday, after several dozen workers became infected with the new coronavirus.

According to Reuters, the Canadian arm of U.S. agribusiness Cargill temporarily idled its second production shift at High River, AB, on Monday, spokesman Daniel Sullivan said.

It adds to the list of roughly one dozen North American meat plants that have closed temporarily or cut production due to the pandemic.
