Translating SARS-CoV-2 Research Into Practical Solutions For The Meat And Poultry Processing Industry


Our project goal is to identify, develop, validate and rapidly deliver practical cleaning and disinfection strategies and quantitative risk models for science-based decision making that will reduce the presence of SARS-CoV-2 virus and exposure of workers to the virus in meat and poultry (M&P) processing environments.Objective 1: Characterize sources of exposure and associated concentrations of infectious SARS-CoV-2 in M&P processing environments during and after simulated meat processing and packaging in KSU's BSL-3 Ag pilot plant facility.Objective 2: Evaluate the efficacy of standard cleaning and disinfection strategies to reduce infectious SARS-CoV-2 on surfaces in the meat processing environment.
