Lincoln Premium Poultry announced their second and third cases of COVID-19 Friday.

“These two employees worked on day shift in the 2nd processing part of our facility and worked night shift in the 2nd processing part of our facility. Once we learned these team members were demonstrating symptoms, we advocated for testing and also removed additional employees known to be in close contact with these individuals” a company spokeswoman said in a statement.

All employees are self-isolating at home with pay, the statement said.

Lincoln Premium Poultry will be hosting UNMC and Three Rivers Health Department officials at their facility Friday afternoon to go over additional guidance for mitigation efforts.
