The total of positive COVID-19 cases includes 58 individuals who were tested by the Department of Public Health or when seeking care through their own health care providers and an additional 533 who were tested onsite from May 18th to May 21st.
The Tyson Pork Plant in Storm Lake temporarily shut down last week after the outbreak was announced, during which additional deep cleaning and sanitizing was conducted. Limited production will resume on Wednesday.
