No complaints at the vegetable farm in Borken

The inspection of the living and working conditions on the vegetable farm in Borken by experts from the occupational health and safety department of the district government of Münster, the district and the city of Borken did not result in any complaints. This is communicated by the district of Borken. The company adheres to all legal requirements and also implements the officially prescribed extensive hygiene concept to protect the workforce. The predominantly Romanian harvest helpers work and live in small groups on the company premises. In the production hall, only every second workplace is occupied on the assembly lines and in otherwise closely spaced workplaces. The pitches are separated from each other by plexiglass panes and everyone working there works with a mouth and nose covering.
For corporate occupational health and safety, the senior government director Dr. Jürgen Querbach and his colleague Elmar Schmitz, Rene Terwolbeck, Head of the Office for the City of Borken, and Dr. Dr. for the District Borken Elisabeth Schwenzow and district health officer Annette Scherwinski took part in the inspection. They also had the opportunity to speak to employees with the help of interpreters.
During the course of today, the DRK will be commissioned by the district health office - as Kai Zwicker announced - test again to have clarity on the progress of the infection.
To the background:
At a vegetable farm in Borken, a total of 11 of the 148 employees - mostly Romanian harvest helpers - tested positive for the corona virus. They have virtually no disease symptoms and are in quarantine like their contacts. As soon as the infection became known, the district health office in Borken issued strict conditions for the farm and the operations there to prevent the virus from spreading further. This includes in particular the implementation of an extensive hygiene concept.
