Meatpacking plants in Cache Valley have been hit hard with COVID-19 with several hundred workers diagnosed with the disease in the past several weeks. Community organizations and individuals are trying to provide needed help to the affected families. Some of the workers at the JBS plant in Hyrum staged a walk-out to protest the company’s handling of the coronavirus outbreak.

On Thursday’s Access Utah our guests will include a worker at the JBS plant and her family; Lizette Villegas, a Cache Valley resident who helped organize a protest event in Logan; and Randy Williams, CRIC Vice President.
