Of the 77 people who have tested positive for COVID-19 in Nobles County so far, 33 were employees of JBS, 6 were family members.

JBS operates more than 60 meat, poultry and prepared food facilities in the U.S. The Worthington facility is now the third of their plants to close temporarily during the pandemic.
