Creekstone Farms in Arkansas City is not one of the Kansas meat-packing plants that will receive COVID-19 testing kits because it is not among the industry hot spots for the virus. According to county health officials, to date, no employees of Creekstone have tested positive. Creekstone has a five-page protocol for how to deal with the pandemic at its plant, including wellness screenings, hand-washing stations and hand sanitizer at entrances, suspension of all visitors except for essential vendors, and distributing masks to all employees. Social distancing measures began more than a month ago, including staggered breaks, dividers in the break room and employees working from home if able. Disinfecting fog is used throughout the facility nightly. While nationwide, the virus has caused some meat packing plants to slow down production or close temporarily, Creekstone is still producing at its normal levels.
