Response from Tyson
We have continued to make significant progress in ensuring the health and safety of our team members, including through expanded testing and onsite health resources and education at plants... [W]e have begun disclosing verified results from facility-wide COVID-19 testing to health and government officials, team members and stakeholders as they become available.
... Team members who test positive receive paid leave and may return to work only when they have met the criteria established by both the CDC and Tyson... Testing and case management are just one aspect of the work we’re doing to help protect team members, their loved ones and our communities. We have in place a host of protective steps that meet or exceed CDC and OSHA guidance for preventing COVID-19. These include temperature checks for all team members before every shift, providing mandatory protective face masks to all team members, and a range of social distancing measures including physical barriers between workstations as well as in break rooms.
