Tyson reopened its largest pork plant today in Waterloo after about two weeks.

Tyson also released images from inside that show the changes they have made to protect workers. There is now plexiglass between work stations and dividers in the break room. There is also a medical mobile unit on-site to check workers for symptoms.

Tyson had more than 1,000 employee cases of COVID-19 at three facilities in Waterloo, Columbus Junction, and Perry.
