The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued Interim Guidance from CDC and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Manufacturing Workers and Employers (the Interim Guidance), which provides recommendations related to COVID-19 transmission considerations for manufacturing workers and employers.

The Interim Guidance applies to a number of manufacturing industries, including food processing facilities.
