She noted such information on the plant's safety procedures was being provided in "several languages," the company's absentee policy was "relaxed" and those who had questions or concerns were encouraged to have a face-to-face conversation with their direct supervisor or manager.

"This is a challenging time, and they're feeling anxious," Croston acknowledged. "We believe information is the best tool for fighting this virus. We also encouraging them to tell us what they're seeing."

"She" above is Liz Croston, a Tyson spokesperson.
