Editor’s note: This story has been updated after the previously published Texas Tribune article underwent a major revision. Moore County Journal periodically republishes articles from the Texas Tribune.
The Texas Tribune reported Wednesday afternoon that the JBS Beef meatpacking plant in Cactus was rejecting the state’s offer to test all JBS employees. A few hours later the article was revised saying that JBS had “reversed course”.
According to the revised Texas Tribune article, JBS said Wednesday afternoon that it would work with state health officials to begin testing its roughly 3,000 employees.
