COVID-19 Cases in Canadian Slaughterhouses

Number of COVID-19 Cases in Canadian Slaughterhouses and Meat Processing Plants

The facilities represented in the following table are Canadian slaughterhouses and meat processing/packing plants. This data is gathered predominantly from media reports. Some information has been gathered from company statements or media releases. As public health offices do not routinely publish the number of COVID-19 cases in these facilities and some may not be reported in the media, the real case count is expected to be higher. The totals for both cases and deaths are for workers themselves and exclude any linked COVID-19 cases outside of the facility (e.g. family or community transmission).
