2 Sisters has reopened its processing plant at Coupar Angus, after a two week closure linked to a coronavirus cluster.
A spokesman said the company had been working closely with the incident management team, NHS Tayside and the local authority during the closure. Staff will receive more training on preventing transmission. The company said it was “critically important for our people to understand their obligations away from the factory in the local community, which our initial analysis suggests has played a significant role in the transmission of the virus.”
Staff will get additional training on “best practice guides on issues ranging from transport arrangements, conduct in the community, to keeping COVID-safe in a shared household. We expect each and every colleague to take personal responsibility for their own behaviours outside of work.”
“We also realise there will be colleagues who have tested positive and may believe this provides them with some level of immunity. The reality is that we don’t know this to be true, so our teams will be making sure everyone knows we all have a shared responsibility to protect each of us and our wider community from any further outbreak.”
