A third meat processing plant in Alberta has declared a COVID-19 outbreak.

This time it is at the Harmony Beef meatpacking plant north of Calgary.

Alberta Health officials say there are 34 cases.

This on the heels of a federal announcement of $252 million for the agri-food sector hit hard by processing plant closures and a surplus of produce because of the pandemic.
