Thanks to cooperation between the Danish Crown employees, their company doctor and an accredited test laboratory, around 1,440 employees were tested for the new corona virus within 3 days.

"Already we can proudly announce that none of our tested employees was diagnosed positive for the new corona virus", said Andreas Rode, Vice President Danish Crown Fleisch GmbH, on friday.

Safety measures such as contactless fever measurement, strict distance regulations, stricter apartment checks and a general obligation to wear masks on the entire company premises are therefore beginning to bear fruit. The close exchange with the responsible health authority is also of essential importance in this difficult situation, said Rode.
