Citingmedia CNET reported that some car manufacturers affected by the global outbreak of the new coronavirus have begun to take appropriate measures. The report said Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) had restricted domestic and foreign travel by its employees. If there is a “necessary” situation, it must be reported to the leadership.
Ford also restricts recent travel activities for its employees. Bloomberg reported the decision Tuesday after two Ford employees contracted the virus in China. Ford did not disclose more information about the employees, and the automaker did not immediately return a request for comment from themedia, RoadShow. The report says restrictions on non-essential travel will last until March 27.
Toyota has also taken precautions and told RoadShow that it has now restricted all travel activities outside North America to very important and necessary activities. The company does not currently restrict travel within the United States.
