JBS USA operates more than 60 meat, poultry and prepared foods facilities across the United States. As such, our role in providing food for Americans—and citizens around the globe— is critical. Ensuring the health and safety of our team members as we address COVID-19 is even more critical.
That’s why the company is focusing its efforts to help combat the spread of the virus while protecting our team members and our company.
JBS USA continues to partner with expert epidemiologists and medical professionals, and is following guidance provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the
Occupational Safety and Health Administration, local health departments and other officials to prevent the potential spread of COVID-19.
To date, the company has adopted more than $100 million in enhanced safety measures to keep its workplaces and team members safe.
JBS USA continues to communicate and coordinate with federal, state, local and public health officials to:
JBS USA is also investing more than $50 million in the local communities where its team members live and work. The investment will include donations to alleviate food insecurity, strengthen long-term community infrastructure and well-being, and support COVID-19 emergency response and relief efforts.
We have instituted policies with regard to social distancing and sanitation, and developed a COVID-19 training program that includes specific instructions on how to stay safe at work, as well as how to stay safe at home. As this health crisis continues to evolve, JBS USA will continue to adapt and adjust its approach as necessary.
To date, JBS USA temporarily closed four facilities (facilities include: Souderton, PA; Green Bay, WI; Greeley, CO and Worthington, MN) to help prevent the potential spread of COVID-19. All facilities have reopened.
