However, the assembly plants, located in Ramos Arizpe and Silao, have not yet opened, but activities may possibly be restarted as of today, May 22, depending on the status of their suppliers.
GM has resumed its activities, but has had to implement a robust health security protocol, in accordance with the actions that the company has taken globally and in line with the recommendations of organizations and authorities, this being a closely watched test to know if the Workers from a wide range of industries can return to factories in large numbers without a resurgence of COVID-19 infections.
Including these new safety practices is just part of the work that companies must do to ensure worker safety, prevent infection, and reopen their factories after an extraordinary shutdown.
