RIDDLE, Ore. – A COVID-19 outbreak has been reported at Roseburg Forest Products.

John Myers, director of environmental health and safety at the company, said a team member at the Riddle plywood plant tested positive on Sept. 10.

They worked with the Douglas Public Health Network and Oregon Health Authority to coordinate quarantine and contact tracing measures.

That worker has recovered and returned to work.

At another facility – Riddle Engineered Wood – an employee and their spouse tested positive. They are currently in quarantine.

No other employees have tested positive at this time, according to Myers.

“The safety of our team members and our communities is paramount, and Roseburg will continue to do all we can to mitigate the spread of the virus,” Myers said.
