Central Valley Meat Co. Has COVID-19 Outbreak

138 Infected at Hanford Packing Plant

Hanford, CA (April 22, 2020) – On April 22, Kings County had 32 cases of coronavirus. That number quickly ballooned to more than 200. Most of those cases are connected to one place – the Central Valley Meat Co. packing plant in Hanford.

Within a short time, the meat plant had 138 infected employees. Many of the employees were asymptomatic. However, contact tracing led back to the meat plant.

Health officials are working to provide special testing and monitoring for employees to prevent further spread of the coronavirus. The outbreak at the meat plant is believed to be largely contained.

However, there seems to be some issue with work policies at the meat plant. An employee at Central Valley Meat Co. has filed a class-action lawsuit, claiming that the company encouraged multiple employees to return to work the day after they tested positive for COVID-19 by offering bonuses.
