GERMANY, Husum. As reported by Deutsche Presse-Agentur (dpa), the quarantine for 169 employees at Danish Crown's Husum slaughterhouse has been lifted again.

At the Husum slaughterhouse, signs are pointing to a resumption of operations if a revised hygiene concept meets with a positive response from the authorities. After the district authority lifted the quarantine of 169 employees last Friday, a new row test of all employees and external workers would be carried out today, Monday. This was reported by lebensmittelzeitung.net, citing the dpa news agency.

The aim is to resume operations on Thursday with a revised hygiene concept, the report continues. The district had imposed an operating break on Danish Crown at its Husum location until February 24, after infections with Sars-CoV-2 accumulated in the workforce. In two series of tests, a total of 113 employees and 23 contacts tested positive for the coronavirus.
