Twenty-seven workers at a southeastern Manitoba poultry plant have tested positive for COVID-19, while another 62 people linked to the plant are self-isolating.

The first case of the illness at the Exceldor Cooperative plant in Blumenort, Man. — formerly a Granny’s Poultry plant — was detected nearly two weeks ago on Oct. 8, said Gabrielle Fallu, a spokesperson for the Quebec-based company, in a statement on Wednesday.

Exceldor merged with Granny’s earlier this year, the Manitoba-based company’s website says.
