Musk had hoped that the factory, which was closed in mid-March due to the coronavirus lockdowns, would be restarted with 30% of the normal workforce. Tesla manufactures around 415,000 cars yearly at the Fremont plant, and moving operations elsewhere would be an arduous task. This threat comes amidst the firm’s desire to increase the production of Tesla Model Y, which has been the most profitable car in the firm’s history.

A spokesperson for Alameda county stated that its health department is recommending the automaker to wait at least another week before resuming production (via Reuters). Meanwhile, local infection rates would be monitored, and the necessary safety productions can be discussed.
