If we become aware that an employee has tested positive for COVID-19, we follow CDC, state, and regional guidelines and employ contact tracing and self quarantine measures as needed for our personnel.  

And Local 6115 out of MInorca confirmed one case there as well. Owner ArcelorMittal sent a statement, saying that the person is quarantining at home, and that the last time they were at work was on Monday, July 6th. Co-workers sharing this work area are being notified and their plan for further action is being evaluated. Sanitization of possibly affected areas has begun and will continue.
