12 confirmed cases of COVID-19 at Ingalls Shipbuilding in Pascagoula
The numbers keep rising at Ingalls Shipbuilding in Pascagoula as two more employees tested positive for the Coronavirus, bringing the total to 12.
Ingalls President Brian Cuccias announced they have extended their Easter holiday period and also stated “all employees will be paid full holiday pay for Thursday, April 9th in addition to the previously scheduled Friday and Monday holidays. Additionally, when the shipyard returns to work on April 14th, we will begin operating with a one-hour gap between the end of the first shift and the start of the second shift. Hopefully this added time period during the Easter break will provide you more quality time with your family. It will also give us the time required to expand our additional preventative cleaning throughout the yard, offices, and onsite locations.”
All of the confirmed cases have been employees from the west bank.
