Thousands Of Workers Forced To Leave Ford Assembly Plant On Second Day After Reopening, COVID-19 Spreading

Thousands of workers had to leave Chicago’s Ford assembly plant after its second day of reopening because someone tested positive for COVID-19.

Several Ford employees told WBBM how Ford is not protecting them:

I’m worried right now. This is the second day, and we are already hearing about this.

Social distancing doesn’t really work.

All these people are crowded and on top of each other. I lost a brother to coronavirus May 6. I cleaned my own workstation myself. How our jobs are set-up, if one person gets in the hole that would affect the person behind him.

A Ford spokesperson says they have had close contact with the employee who tested positive, and have been disinfecting and cleaning any areas the employee may have touched.
