Tesla's assembly plant in Fremont is open again this morning, in apparent violation of county health orders.
Cars and delivery trucks streamed into the main entrance of Tesla's Fremont factory Monday morning and KCBS Radio has confirmed that employees have been told to report for work. While Alameda County has allowed some businesses to reopen, Tesla is not one of them.
“They’re not essential so they should close,” says Churchill Espiritu who works across the street at Moore’s Hydraulics, which has been deemed essential. “So I don’t know what’s going on, I don’t know what Elon Musk is thinking. But they should comply.”
Musk says employees will be required to wear masks and workstations will have physical dividers.
It is not yet clear how Alameda County officials will respond.
