Outside the farm, WSOC-TV could see workers wearing protective gear, including masks and face shields.
Many of them said they have their temperatures checked before going into the plant every day. The farm has set up a tent for that health screening near the employee entrance.
The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services is not saying the exact number of cases at the farm, but at least two cases qualifies as an outbreak.
The health department in Burke County is not providing facility names or numbers of positive cases at specific places.
When we asked workers if they have been tested or know of employees who have been tested, they told us it is not happening.
“They changed it to where they put every section has its own little barrier," one employee said. “So you’re not like even beside nobody. ... There’s a screen beside you now. They’ve got that worked out.”
Currently, there are more than 1,300 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in 23 meat processing plants in North Carolina.
WSOC-TV reached out to Case Farms about whether or not officials plan on ramping up testing, but the station has not heard back.
