A COVID-19 outbreak among 81 workers at Viracon's architectural glass factory caused the Owatonna plant to close down for deep-cleaning for two days last week, health officials said.

The plant has the fourth largest outbreak among manufacturers in Minnesota, behind meat-processing facilities JBS in Worthington, Jennie-O Turkey Store in Willmar and Melrose, and Pilgrim's Pride in Cold Spring, the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) said.
