You'll work if it kills you.

White House points to CDC guidelines as more meatpacking workers infected

Perdue cited CDC guidance for critical workers, which allows people who may have been exposed to someone with Covid-19 to stay on the job. But other food industry leaders have found guidance from CDC insufficient for manufacturers trying to keep their employees safe.
From everything I have read, six feet is not going to cut it. The powers that be are going to pretend not to know this. They will grind these workers up like so much ground round. Must keep the american engine fed and operational.

Say what?
"It is always the American government's position to say, in the choice between the loss of our way of life as Americans and the loss of life, of American lives, we have to always choose the latter. The social scientists are telling us about the economic disaster that is going on. Our (Gross Domestic Product) is supposed to be down 20% alone this quarter. It is policymakers' decision to put on our big boy and big girl pants and say it is the lesser of these two evils. It is not zero evil, but it is the lesser of these two evils and we intend to move forward that direction. That is our responsibility and to abdicate that is to insult the Americans that voted us into office." Indiana Congressman Trey Hollingsworth (R)

the "Covid Killing Fields' brought to you by the Murderer himself, Donald Fuckface Trump. I will not be having my employees back to work until Gavin gives the all clear. Do you think that he believes that because he rewrites history that when this is all over people are going to forget? You will not see people naming their children Donald just like you know who.
