Tesla forced to close its Fremont plant

The Alameda County Administration in California, USA, explained that Tesla is not a “core business,” ordering an electric vehicle manufacturer to restrict its Fremont factory to “minimum basic operations.”

The news came the day after the founder of the American automaker, Elon Musk, told his employees that Fremont would continue to work normally, despite the closure order issued by the county’s administration asking employees who feel unwell Do not go to work.

Clarification means that Tesla will now be forced to stop the production and delivery of cars from the Fremont factory, which employs more than 10,000 people, for the duration of the restraining order.

 Here’s what the company’s official Twitter page says: “Tesla is not a core company, as defined in the Alameda County Public Health Order. Tesla may support minimum basic operations in accordance with the Alameda County Public Health Order. ”

Alameda is one of at least nine districts covered by the decree to close the plant. Only the most important trips are allowed; it is recommended that you stay at home in an attempt to control and limit the outbreak of coronavirus. Under lock-up conditions, the Tesla Fremont factory will be limited to minimum basic operations, including security, payroll and employee benefits.

 The decision takes effect only at the American Tesla plant in the middle of the release of the new Model Y crossover, which is expected to be in higher demand than all other Tesla models combined. Previously, Tesla was forced to close its factory in Shanghai, China.
