(Reuters) – Tesla Inc (TSLA.O) has not been allowed to resume operations at its California vehicle factory as local lockdown measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus remain in effect, a county health official said on Friday.
“We’ve been working with them, but we have not given the green light,” Alameda County Health Officer Erica Pan said of Tesla. “We have not said it is appropriate to move forward.”
