On February 20, the Gigafactory in Lingang New Area of the Shanghai Free Trade Zone was operating at full capacity to resume production.

Affected by the new crown pneumonia epidemic, Tesla's Shanghai factory resumed work on February 10 after a short suspension of work, becoming one of the earliest auto companies to resume work in China.

In order to ensure the physical health of the factory employees during the epidemic, as well as the stability and safety of production, Tesla adopted scientific prevention and control measures. SH Observer quoted the factory manager as saying.

Before each employee arrives, Tesla uses digital tools to continuously track its health and schedule to ensure that all employees are healthy and safe. During work, Tesla provides adequate protection measures for on-the-job employees.

Apart from equipment and materials equipped with sufficient masks, goggles, disinfectant and other equipment, Tesla conducts careful health monitoring of employees daily and strictly disinfects work areas to provide employees with a safe production environment.

In addition, the factory provides daily lunch and dinner to ensure that employees have two-to-one activities between the dormitory and the factory to minimize the probability of external infection.

Affected by the new coronavirus pneumonia epidemic, Tesla temporarily closed all offline stores in the Chinese mainland on February 2.

On February 8, Xu Wei, spokesman for the Shanghai municipal government said that the Tesla Shanghai factory located in the Lingang New Area of the Shanghai Pilot Free Trade Zone is scheduled to resume production on February 10.

The Lingang New Area Management Committee also stated that, in light of the characteristics of Tesla and other key production enterprises and the actual difficulties encountered in the resumption of work, they will fully coordinate to help the enterprises put into production as soon as possible and be able to produce normally.

The epidemic of new coronavirus pneumonia has brought certain impacts to all walks of life, and new energy vehicle manufacturers Tesla is no exception. The temporary closure of Tesla's Shanghai Gigafactory will directly affect the Model 3 delivery plan.
