A meat-processing company is being forced to close its doors over coronavirus concerns.
The Kane County Health Department issued an order for Smithfield Foods in St. Charles, Illinois, to temporarily close so the company can work with the health department to implement mitigation efforts against Covid-19, according to a press release.
The Health Department will provide social distancing education and employee safety training relating to personal protective equipment, the press release said.
CNN has reached out to Smithfield Foods for comment.
This is one of several meat-processing plant closures in the last few weeks due to coronavirus outbreaks.
