The state has sent a team to ensure safe conditions in the southwestern Minnesota city, where multiple people have tested positive at a meatpacking plant.

Minnesota's lab-confirmed COVID-19 case count reached 7,851 as of Tuesday morning, fueled in part by outbreaks in the Worthington and St. Cloud areas that are both associated to some extent with food processing plants.

The Minnesota Department of Health on Tuesday reported another 617 lab-confirmed cases of COVID-19, a single-day high in the state for this pandemic, which is caused by a novel coronavirus. The state also reported another 27 deaths, bringing that total to 455.
