Nebraskans who work in meat and poultry plants across the state continue to report very recent examples of dangerous COVID conditions, including dangerous crowding in locker rooms and cafeterias, pressure to work while sick, and insufficient and poor quality masks.
The pandemic is not over. COVID-19 and new variants continue to be a danger. As one worker put it, “The COVID problem is now.” Even as vaccine rollout proceeds, public health experts caution we will need continued protections for some time.
