LIVINGSTON, Calif. — A court says a chicken processing plant in central California that saw a deadly coronavirus outbreak must provide its workers with masks and follow a raft of other anti-COVID-19 health orders.
A judge in Merced County on Wednesday granted a temporary restraining order sought by a union against Foster Farms.
A virus outbreak at its Livingston facility — one of the world's largest chicken plants — killed nine people and sickened hundreds earlier this year.
Foster Farms says it's already following safety rules and repeatedly testing employees for COVID-19, which has caused serious outbreaks at meatpacking plants nationwide.
