WASHINGTON, April 27 (Reuters) - South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem on Monday said she believes that Smithfield's Sioux Falls pork processing plant can reopen "really quickly" as soon as employees can safely be accommodated, hopefully within days.

"I'm hopeful that we can get it opened as soon as possible," she said in an interview on Fox News Channel. "They have some mitigations measures to put in place, but I think in a matter of days it could be opened, as long as everybody continues to work together and get it done."
