American food firm General Mills confirmed that a worker at its Cedar Rapids, IA manufacturing plant is possibly infected with the novel coronavirus, the company told ABC News affiliate KCRG on Monday.
The worker, who is considered a presumed positive case, is currently self-isolating. General Mills said in the report that it also notified other workers that may have been exposed and provided them with instructions.
Cleaning was increased in areas of the plant that the ill worker recently accessed, according to KCRG’s coverage, and General Mills has started cleaning the entire facility more intensively. Workers at the plant are also encouraged to practice social distancing.
General Mills’ facility in Cedar Rapids manufactures Cheerios brand cereal, Lucky Charms brand fruit snacks, and Betty Crocker frosting, per a November 2019 article by the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
