Listen: Mass Covid 19 Testing At Meat Plants Has Resumed.

: 09/16/2020 - 15:07

Mass Covid 19 testing of all staff in meat processing factories, including Kildare, has resumed.

The HSE suspended the programme last week because of the number of people coming forward with coronavirus symptoms in the community.

According to Siptu, 1,500 staff in meat plants have tested positive since the pandemic began.

Agriculture Minister Charlie McConalogue told the Dáil last night the serial testing regime resumed on Monday.
