Vermont is battling a Covid-19 outbreak among migrant workers at an apple orchard

Vermont is battling a Covid-19 outbreak among migrant workers at an apple orchard, state officials announced Monday.

Champlain Orchards in Addison County had 27 lavoratori test positivo durante il fine settimana, Vermont Health Commissioner Dr. Mark Levine said on Tuesday. The commissioner had previously announced 26 casi, with one more test result being reported after the initial announcement.
The first positive case was discovered last week. It came toward the end of the migrant workersquarantine period after arriving in the state in mid-September, and the person is believed to have become ill outside of Vermont, secondo il dott. Levine.
State officials said that the orchard owner was complying with guidance and that apples were disinfected before being sold. The apples are sold in Vermont, parts of Massachusetts and in upstate New York and New Jersey, according to the orchard’s website.
    As the coronavirus is a respiratory virus, il CDC has said that there isno evidence to support transmission of COVID-19 associated with food.
    The orchard owners and state agencies are working to make sure these workers have what they need — cibo, shelter and other things to isolate safely,” Vermont Gov. Phil Scott said in a news conference.
      In light of recent national events, I hardly need to remind Vermonters of the nature of the virus. People do not get sick because they are from a certain place, ethnicity or nationalitythey get sick if they are exposed to the virus.
      Vermont has had the fewest Covid-19 cases of any state, solo con 1,821 casi, secondo la Johns Hopkins University. The state saw no Covid-related deaths or ICU admissions in September, according to state Department of Financial Regulation Commissioner Michael Pieciak.
