Trump will order meat-processing plants to remain open despite COVID-19 outbreaks

Trump plans to order meat-processing plants to remain open, declaring them critical infrastructure as the nation confronts growing disruptions to the food supply, a person familiar with the matter said.

Trump plans to use the Defense Production Act to order the companies to stay open, and the government will provide additional protective gear for employees as well as guidance, according to the person.

Bloomberg News:

Trump’s order will not just focus on Tyson’s corporate chicken slop but also affect “all processing plants supplying beef, chicken, eggs and pork.”

He decided to take this route after claims that 80% of our food supply could shut down; although he retweeted a claim that completely contradicted this claim and stated we had an ample supply of food.
