Tesla has informed Storey County that the company will be reducing on-site staff at the Gigafactory at the Tahoe Reno Industrial Center by roughly 75 percent in the coming days.
“Our companies at TRIC are taking the COVID-19 matter seriously, and regularly report to us the measures they are taking to adhere to the established guidelines while maintaining essential operations, county manager Austin Osborne said. “Checking employee temperatures, creating central access, allowing remote work, maintaining workstation distance, and others are occurring.
“Our grocery stores and doorsteps receive much of our food, sundries, and supplies from our TRIC companies, and we are glad they a part of our community and the vital supply chain for many others outside Nevada,” Osborne continued. “We are also grateful for the measures they are taking to keep our local communities safe.”
