Nissan announced that it will temporarily suspend production of its manufacturing facilities in the U.S. starting March 20 through April 6.
The company is taking this action to boost containment efforts where possible around the COVID-19 coronavirus.
Currently, there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 coronavirus at any Nissan facility. This includes the Smyrna automotive manufacturing facility as of March 19.
Areas deemed business-essential will operate with enhanced safety measures.
On Monday, March 16, Nissan announced its employees with the ability to work remotely were to do so until further notice. This action is out of an abundance of caution to help reduce the risk of spreading the coronavirus and to allow us to redeploy resources for the employee populations who are unable to work remotely.
