The wave of meat-plant closings because of coronavirus keeps rising as a second Minnesota processor - Comfrey Farm Prime Pork - has been idled along with a giant Tyson Foods pig slaughterhouse in Iowa.

COVID-19 cases also have surfaced at meat plants in Minnesota owned by Hormel Foods, though none have prompted closures. Many U.S. meatpacking plants, where hundreds of people work in proximity, have become hives for the virus.
