Trident Seafoods Presents Outrageous COVID-19 Numbers with Only One Medical Professional on Ground

The Trident Seafoods plant in Alaska is being slammed for allowing COVID-19 to spread rampantly through its facility of over 700 workers with only one registered nurse to provide medical care. The numbers as of February 3, 2021 showed that 307 of 706 tested positive for COVID-19. It was also reported that last month, three employees needed medical evacuation and that just last week one person died at the plant. Even with moving a little over 150 “high risk” employees to an Anchorage hotel, there still appeared to be 206 of 554 workers left at the plant who tested positive.

While Trident has defended their protocols for preventing and dealing with COVID-19 cases, their numbers have simply been unacceptable. Additionally, whether facing a pandemic or not, their decision to allow one medical professional to work alone while serving hundreds of employees at a time is senseless.
