KC Paper Plant Has 200 COVID-19 Cases

A paper plant on Kansas City’s East Side, called Aspen Paper, has reported 200 cases of COVID-19, according to Mayor Quinton Lucas recently.

The Kansas City Health Department has tracked the cases back to the plant.

“We are not talking about COVID-19 as much as we were just a week ago, but it continues to be a significant challenge,” Lucas said during a press conference, as reported by KCTV5. “I think, certainly, that this outbreak shows us that.”
