Shell Pennsylvania Chemicals is dealing with another rise in cases among its 7,000 or so construction workers building the petrochemical plant in Beaver County, once again traced mostly to off-site exposure. There are 39 active cases among the workforce as of Nov. 12, according to a statement from Shell.
