The number of confirmed coronavirus cases tied to the JBS USA beef plant in Grand Island, NE, is growing exponentially, reports The Independent.
Roughly 237 people connected to the meatpacking plant have tested positive, Central District Health Department Director Teresa Anderson said.
And the Green Bay Press Gazette reports nearly 150 people have been infected with the coronavirus as part of a cluster linked to JBS Packerland, in what appears to be Wisconsin's largest outbreak from a single facility.
JBS USA operates more than 60 facilities across the United States. The company announced Monday it would temporarily close its Worthington, MN, pork processing plant.
