By Leslie Shaffer

In a letter to their associates, Perdue Farms stated that two employees have tested positive for COVID-19. According to officials at Perdue, “The infected associates are in quarantine for 14 days while they recuperate.”

Due to established privacy laws, the company will not release any information on the two individuals.

Officials at Perdue state that once they knew the news, they “put into action the response plan for pandemics following the Centers for Disease Control (CDC)” and implemented several steps to “guarantee the wellbeing of their associates.” These steps included interviewing the infected associates to determine their movements and contact with others; notifying associates that may have been infected and sending them home to complete 14 days of quarantine.

“Our biggest priority continues to be the health and safety of our associates,” said officials in the statement to employees. “We closed the Milford plant and we stopped production for all of Monday to deep clean and sanitize much more than we normally do everyday.”

Normal shifts at the Milford plant will begin on Tuesday morning. All employees will undergo touch-less temperature taking measures everyday as well as anyone else that enters the plant. The company also urged employees that do not feel well to stay home and contact their medical provider.

“We know that the news that there have been infected associates could be unsettling for some,” Perdue officials stated in the letter. “You can peace of mind that we have done everything possible to guarantee your safety.”
