Meatpacking Plants Have Highest Number of Active COVID

September 10, 2020

LIBERTY, Mo. — Kansas officials say meatpacking plants and jails continue to be the main sites of active coronavirus clusters in the state.

Wednesday’s report from the Kansas Department of Health and environment was the first time officials publicized specific active coronavirus clusters. The state identified 117 active clusters involving 5,099 cases, 192 hospitalizations and 63 deaths.

The information was released hours after several large Kansas business groups released a letter to Gov. Laura Kelly asking her not to identify specific clusters, saying it could harm businesses as they try to recover from the pandemic.

The letter said that “we are unsure what the benefit of this disclosure offers, other than a public shaming of businesses where an outbreak occurs.
