Brazil's JBS says 2.2% of workers at its Goiania beef plant have COVID-19

SAO PAULO, July 6 (Reuters) - Brazilian meatpacker JBS SA said 2.2% of workers at its Goiania beef plant, which employs 900 people, had been placed on leave after testing positive for the COVID-19 respiratory disease, according to a statement sent to Reuters on Monday.

The statement was a response to a question about whether JBS would comply with a labor court decision handed down by Judge Camila Vigilato on July 2, which ordered the company to test all workers at that facility after an outbreak. (Reporting by Ana Mano Editing by Chris Reese)
