COVID-19 impacts lettuce industry | Latest News Videos [Video]
Lettuce farmers in southwestern Arizona are feeling the impacts of COVID-19. Their sales took a big hit last year so they’re planting less this season. With the U.S.-Mexico border still closed, getting enough migrant workers has also been a challenge. To try and keep workers safe, farmers have added new safety measures like masks and social distancing, hoping they won't see an outbreak.
