Lippert employs roughly 11-thousand people across its various facilities, and officials with the company recognize that means the threat of an outbreak is constantly looming.
In an interview with WSBT, HR Officer Nick Fletcher says they have been taking precautions very seriously from the onset of the pandemic, and were averaging about 100 cases per week. That number however has doubled. Because of that, their testing facility will start conducting drive-thru testing. They have leased a spaced near Goshen that will allow employees to drive into a warehouse, receive testing, and then drive out.
Since they began small scale-testing on employees in June, about 25% have come up positive.
