Mitech, a local machinery and metal fabrication shop in Napanee, temporarily closed on Friday due to a COVID-19 outbreak among its employees. At least three workers have now tested positive and several people are now isolating.
The news of the outbreak was initially confirmed by KFLA Public Health on Friday. Following the declaration of the outbreak, family members of the plant took to social media to warn the community about the spread of the virus at the industrial plant.
