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.

The Cargill processing plant in High River just reopened Monday after 900 workers became ill with the virus.

The JBS facility in Brooks has remained open.
