Tyson Foods announced Tuesday it will be giving $60 million in bonuses to frontline workers and truck drivers who are providing food during the coronavirus pandemic.

"We’re proud of how our team members have stepped up during this challenging time to make sure we continue fulfilling our critical mission of feeding people across America," Tyson Foods CEO Noel White said in a prepared statement.

The company recently relaxed its attendance policy and encourages employees to stay at home if they have symptoms of COVID-19, White said. The company also is taking daily temperature checks of employees and has implemented daily cleaning with extra sanitizing in high traffic areas, he added.

"Our team members are leading the charge to continue providing food to the nation," White said. "The bonuses are another way we can say 'thank you' for their efforts."

The company is also making other moves, including providing facemasks for workers who request them.

Tyson also recently announced it would be giving $13 million to local communities in the Springdale, Arkansas, area where it is based.
