Worker tests positive for coronavirus at 3rd Lower Mainland poultry plant

A plant worker at Fraser Valley Special Poultry in Chilliwack has tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

This is now the third poultry plant in B.C.’s Lower Mainland to be hit by an outbreak.

In a Facebook statement on Wednesday, the company said the worker tested positive on the afternoon of April 28 and has been at home in isolation since last Friday, following the onset of mild symptoms.

Fraser Health said there is no evidence to suggest that food is likely a source of the transmission and there is no need for a recall at this time, the plant said.
