Scott’s Strawberry and Tomato Farms in Tennessee released some good news Friday, all 38 employees who tested positive for COVID-19 have made a full recovery.

“We’ve been farming for more than six decades... we take pride in our produce, and we are taking every precaution to keep our customers safe and give them an environment where they feel comfortable,” president of Scott’s Farm, Steve Scott, said in a statement to WCYB. “We’ve had an outpouring of support from our community and we’re so thankful for that.”
