In the area where it is located, the work of all enterprises that are not vital is prohibited.
Tesla will temporarily not be able to produce electric cars at its main plant in the United States, because yesterday in the Alamida County of California, where it is located, a three-week ban on the operation of all non-vital enterprises was introduced. Such enterprises can maintain only the minimum necessary activity, including security, payroll and its payment to employees. For violation there is a fine and even imprisonment. This measure is designed to slow the spread of coronavirus.
The company, located in the city of Fremont, employs more than 10,000 workers. Last year, the plant produced about 415,000 electric vehicles, and recently began production of Model Y SUVs.
Alamida is not the only county in California where business and relocation are limited. In counties in the San Francisco Bay Area, 273 cases have been reported. Residents are advised not to leave home without good reason.
