The Yorkshire meat factory at the centre of a coronavirus outbreak has re-opened - although 165 workers tested positive for Covid-19.
Kober Ltd, based at West 26 Industrial Estate in Cleckheaton, West Yorkshire, supplies bacon to Asda stores across the country.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock revealed in a Government briefing that there had been a localised coronavirus outbreak at the site.
A statement from Kirklees Council said that the whole workforce was offered testing and 165 individuals tested positive for COVID-19.
These positive cases are being followed up by the NHS Test and Trace programme and they are being advised to self-isolate for seven days.
Anyone identified as a close contact of a positive case is being advised to self-isolate for 14 days.
The site was shut down when the outbreak was detected and staff sent home on full pay.
The factory has now resumed production but at a reduced capacity and with a smaller workforce.
I’d like to thank KOBER for acting quickly and working with us and Public Health England to help manage this outbreak.
