March 17, 2020—Tesla appears to be running its Fremont, Calif., factory despite a "shelter in place" order in the area, reported Electrek.
According to the report, 6 counties in the Bay Area have issued a ‘shelter in place’ order with the hope to reduce the transmission of the COVID-19 virus and flatten the growth of the virus.
Tesla's Fremont factory is where it produces most of its electric vehicles. The "shelter in place" order went into effect at midnight on March 16.
Electrek reported it received several reports from Tesla employees stating that they were told by the company that they plan to be in operation today.
