More virus trouble

The city of Unalaska is reporting that Westward Seafoods, owner of Alyeska Seafoods, has "temporarily halted production based on a cluster of positive cases of COVID-19 identified during surveillance testing of the workforce at the Alyeska plant."

All these plant closures are just moves to avoid the bad publicity of having cases and continuing to run the plants. How does pausing operations actually help? The workers all live in company bunkhouses, share cafeteria space, share bathrooms, and share common areas. Not working the line isn't stopping people from intermingling or address the realities of plant life.

All the workers that traveled to Dutch and Akutan and their dependents aren't making a living, not to mention the fishermen that deliver to the plants.
