"There's plenty of protein," said David Dewey, president of the California Association of Meat Processors. "You just have to look for it in different places."

As I was reading this article, Ruth Lafler was posting to another thread, "I suspect we are on a different supply chain for meat, especially chicken, since there are large poultry processing plants in the Central Valley that as far as I know have not been affected." https://www.chowhound.com/post/grocer...

"Bill Mattos, president of the California Poultry Federation, said, 'All of our plants are operating as usual and producing enough chicken to meet the market.'

Mattos said many poultry plants were at maximum capacity while practicing social distancing and using dividers to separate workers. 'We have masks. We check temperatures,' he said."
