FORD RESUMES U.S. PRODUCTION AND OPERATIONS
MAY 18, 2020 | DEARBORN, MICH.




Ford started resuming production and operations in the United States today. The company has implemented robust safety and care measures globally to help support a safe and healthy environment for the company’s workforce, including health assessment measures, personal protective equipment and facility modifications to increase social distancing.

Poorly written article. As per their policy, lines were stopped as testing results for positive asymptotic workers came in.
Line was stopped and cleaned, the individuals sent home for self quarantine. Contact tracing was done, presumably with interviews and with these wearable devices they are testing that record who you were in close proximity to and for how long while in the plant. Anyone of potential risk was sent home for self quarantine as well.
Then the lines resumed production. No ‘havoc’ was wreaked. Everything was orderly and controlled. I hate hyperbole in ‘news’ articles, leave that for the op-eds.
I got more detail from other news sources like the NY times and Detroit News. I am surprised at reuters

Yes, not the best coverage. Recontamination and cross-exposure off workers was going to happen. Glad Ford was able to handle it well and is adjusting its procedures as they learn.

Nice to hear positive news on Ford plants reopening!
Smooth on day 1, closed two facilities due to covid-19 cases on day 3. Not so smooth but totally expected. What has me optimistic is how well they revised their plans and reopened those plants on day 4 under updated guidelines.
