Health Editor’s Note: With not reporting coronavirus outbreaks, three food companies have earned the ‘right’ to be closed. Issues have a way of coming out, especially when effort is made to cover them up. With the COVID-19 pandemic, we cannot ignore clusters of coronavirus infections because, well, they will quickly give way to increased outbreaks and on and on and on. The highly contagious nature of this coronavirus makes any effort to ignore it, futile. I wonder if this will keep us from getting that next Big Mac?….Carol

by Evie Fordham/Fox Business
S & S Foods in Azusa, California, was told to close after 58 employees tested positive for coronavirus, KTLA reported. The order also included Mission Foods Corp. in Commerce, where 40 tested positive, and Golden State Foods Corp. in City of Industry, where 43 tested positive, according to KTLA.
They have significant outbreaks amongst their employees, [and] we were not notified, as we’re required to be notified, once they had their three cases,” LA County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said Monday, according to KTLA. “Our inspector asked them to make some modifications to really enhance their infection control protocols at all three sites.”
